A Reputation Without Oil

Advocates known to be frank, honest and sound.

... Perhaps the most valuable thing the lawyer brings into the courtroom when he is an advocate is his reputation. His reputation for candor and soundness is worth three points in his brief and a marvelous opening for his oral argument. If his reputation is bad, I don't care what he says or how he says it — he is climbing a glass mountain in shoes covered with oil.
