One of the easiest commitments to agree to, and hardest for me to keep, Is to do no harm.

Somehow, built into this lawyer-persona, is this drive to be clear and concise, to be right, and to win. Which unfortunately, too often, ends up doing the opposite, or nearly, of not causing harm. It raises the question, for me: can lawyers practice (or live) with a commitment to doing no harm? Would it put our clients in jeopardy? What about our reputations?

Or could it work? And if so, could it – would it – be in service of a different, maybe deeper, kind of justice, and fairness, and love?
