"It's a glam world if I stay in the capital. I opted to find a different location
and got into litigation in criminal court.
The money is not good. But I got to be in a different atmosphere.
Cases come and go. Loosing is never an option.
Another case. I won.The verdict was not guilty. The defendant walked.
Guess what?
Bad evidence. The case was reopened. I resigned from the criminal court.
Will probably go into business and play safe this time.
Becomes a paper lawyer perhaps."

"I can't stand dealing with clients.
I can't stand the reality and the consequences I have to face.
Someone came up to meet me, saying, our company has to pay this much tax.
can't you do something about it? you can do a tax evasion scheme.
it's simple and everybody does that. the paper is ready.
we both sign the legal paper and we make sure that
the tax will be decreased from the initial portion.
we guarantee that nothing will happen that everything will be okay.
I realize the sum of tax which has been successfully evaded.
God, that much money. God, it can feed thousands of people.
Providing better access to basic needs. How can I sleep peacefully at night?"
