John 3; 16

adding to tyhe conversation: .

 Exposing/identifying the underlying and often unaddressed "problem". . . that leads to legal problems...

In addressing your legal matters, it's equally important to account (while letting those in a position to "address") the extra-legal problems that inform clients' struggles... 

(And to say "clients" brings up a relationship (for lawyers) with an accompanying call (guidance, and not a demand to others which isn't my "jurisdiction") to not yield to some assembly line, business approach  ("in and out")...

"Productive member of soc..." No:  

 

If we're serious about helping our clients, we have to do more than this...  Things are far more straight-forward than they seem; but straight-forward doesn't mean superficial: Whether it's pretending that clients' problems are "outside the scope (of some artificial or cultural restriction)," offer meaningless cliches, or narcissistically diagnose defendants (instead of helping them recognize and account for problems they struggle with, etc.), when lawyers refuse to help for unhelpful reasons, they end up denying themselves and their clients, an opportunity to remove a lack of clarity...  And  that can be what stands in the way of many things, including a better disposition of their case, as well as their clients' delivery from what influences their (alleged) commission of criminal offenses...
