I am a very strong believer that the difference between a profession and a job, is the obligation it attaches to you as a professional. It encompasses using all the best of your skill and professionalism to do the best job for your client, but applying standards that are set by the profession and, to some extent, the community. You owe an obligation to the court, to law itself, as well as to any client."
