Inspirational Thought

“Remember that like any great edifice, a lawyer’s reputation cannot be quickly built, but it can be quickly destroyed. Remember also that there are enormous opportunities and temptations to trade long-range benefits, including your reputation, for short-term advantages. It is the same kind of trade-off that Jacob proposed to Esau some three millennia past. It was not a good deal then, and it hasn’t improved with age.

So I’m hopeful that in your dealings with your fellow lawyers you will always lean a little on the careful side. When those opportunities come, as they surely will, to harvest an advantage in a particular case at the cost of your long-range relationship with your fellow lawyers: Don’t do it.”

—Rex E. Lee
Lawyer Policy Maker, Life in the Law: Answering God's Interrogatories, p. 171
