” You have to work hard as lawyers ! You have to be dedicated and committed to the business of law. As lawyers there are times you may have to sleep in the office. I am sure working hard doesn’t kill because even a lazy man will die.
“It’s usually said that lawyers don’t sell cement . The only business that lawyers do is law. If you must succeed as lawyers, you have to work very hard ”
