There’s something about the idea of an attorney wearing an intrinsically biased lens for a client that doesn’t feel right. In fact, it isn’t. The tactic of “counsel” turning a blind eye and deaf ear to evidence of a client’s transgressions against an opposing party is common place in the legal arena, however. Notwithstanding, every attorney should be an objective judge whose quintessential concern is establishment of material facts and their part in arrival at judicial decisions that are respectful of all of those facts and the rights of all parties.
