Lawyers are not above the law.
By virtue of their law licenses, attorneys have a monopoly on the practice of law. But lawyers were not handed this valuable position without a commensurate responsibility. Lawyers must meet a stringent “standard of care” and they owe their clients the fiduciary duties of good faith and fair dealing. Lawyers are not above the law, and if lawyers commit legal malpractice or breach their ethical duties, they should be held accountable.
