Many (not all) really want to win a case, and in order to win they might have some proof against them, so they will lie, and make a good case based on that lie, sometimes winning the case since the oponent didnt have any good proof that they where lying.

They don't really lie as much as telling just enough truth for their client to win. It's up to the lawyer on the other side to realize and prove where the rest of the truth is.

My opinion is that defense lawyers are more guilty of this than prosecutors. realistically, how many people go to court, and hire a lawyer if they are not guilty. If I was not guilty of a crime, I could defend myself. If I was guilty, I would need someone who knows legal technicalities to raise sufficient doubt. (Clinton comes to mind: " It depends on what your definition of "is" is.)

Encourage a specific conclusion. They have a way with words to influence others thoughts and understandings on the actual facts. They often walk a thin line between right/wrong... True/false... Fact/fiction, and it's all done under our legal system without a hitch.

no one can lie with their mouth full... They're too busy devouring everything you own.
