Lawyers disagree over issues. They debate. They argue, and they make each other mad sometimes. But they have an opinion they are not afraid to share. That's admirable. Even if I don't agree with someone I respect what he or she has to say. I may be aggressive or harsh at times, but that's out of passion and a desire to make this a better country.
I care about fighting for my clients and helping people. When something gets in the way of those two objectives I can get aggressive and belligerent, but that's being a lawyer.
