Note: By definition, the obligations and duties of attorneys are toward the court and the “public” (abstraction of the mind that favors government) never the client. Clients are fodder for the freedom-usurpation and wealth-confiscation activities of the court. Attorneys are there to ensure that the court is well stocked with paying customers. It is a rigged game, with attorneys enjoying many special privileges (such as having their fees enforced by judicial decree, even when they lose) in exchange for shepherding unwitting client-victims into court at the sacrificial judicial altar. Clients are also “wards of the court” and therefore “persons of unsound mind.” See client, wards of court.
