At HAWM the OATH OF ATTORNEY is what we live by:
HAWM does solemnly swear:
We will support the Constitution of the United States and the Constitution of the State of Florida;
We will maintain the respect due to courts of justice and judicial officers;
We will not counsel or maintain any suit or proceedings which shall appear to me to be unjust, nor any defense except such as we believe to be honestly debatable under the law of the land;
We will employ for the purpose of maintaining the causes confided to me such means only as are consistent with truth and honor, and will never seek to mislead the judge or jury by any artifice or false statement of fact or law;
We will maintain the confidence and preserve inviolate the secrets of my clients, and will accept no compensation in connection with their business except from them or with their knowledge and approval;
We will abstain from all offensive personality and advance no fact prejudicial to the honor or reputation of a party or witness, unless required by the justice of the cause with which we are charged;
We will never reject, from any consideration personal to myself, the cause of the defenseless or oppressed, or delay anyone’s cause for lucre or malice.
So help us God.
