An Attorney's "First" Duty is to the Courts

"Corpus Juris Secundum" which means "The Body of Law" or Legal encyclopedia,

Volume 7, Section 4: "Attorney & client:

An Attorney's "first" duty is to the Courts (1) and the public (2) and not to the client (3), and wherever the duties to an attorney's client "conflict" with those interests that he/she owes his allegiance to, as an officer of the court in the administration of justice, the former must yield to the latter.".

The biggest problem today is that People do not know their own rights.
