The lawyer's job

The lawyer has basically during any judicial procedure, a double mission and assistance vis-à-vis its customers representation.

The lawyer is first in charge of legal assistance mission as a technician of law, it can provide consultations on various objects, even outside of any dispute. It can thus be consulted on the drafting of statutes or contracts, precisely in order to counter the possibility of costly litigation. If since a 1990 reform, the legal advice is not entirely free, the lawyer does not have as long a monopoly in this informal advisory function.
