    Default Lying To Your Lawyer

    Hello

    Is it best to be completely honest with your lawyer even if it goes against your case?

    Will the judge listen to my honest statement but still accept a different story (a lie) to use in court? Or is that totally unheard of...

    Thank you

    You are obviously confused. Lying is the lawyers job - not yours. Tell him/her the truth and they will make you a nice fabricated version. Remember, they went to school for this.

    P.S. the more you pay; the better lie they tell.

    Thanks for the reply

    Ok then, so should I tell my lawyer the truth and also the "lie" that I think will work (since I know the most about the situation and all it's "subtleties")

    Thanks again

    You don't wanna tell the court the truth because you're guilty right? I can defiantly understand that... I wouldn't want to go to the "big house" either.

    Just tell your lawyer the truth. They are obligated to keep it confidential. For a right price they will come up with a lie for you. It's their JOB to lie, not yours!!

    correct


    Now my other question:
    Should I also tell him how I would lie after I told them the truth?

    Thanks

    Sure, it's worth a shot. How easy is your story to disprove? Does it have a lot of holes in it?

    Hey zed - when you're done squeegee-ing your monitor, how about helping me mop up the iced tea B.E. caused to spontaneously be spit into my keyboard. Together we could be the beginning of a beautiful class action suit! B.E. - you really should have a warning label man =0

    I am not liable for any damages caused due to the reaction of reading my hilarious posts. I was simply trying to inform the O.P. about the duty's of his defense attorney.

    P.S. If he pays a extra million he might even get a cool catch-phrase. Kind of like, "If it don't fit you must acquit!"
