(...) we lawyers are not the mercenary instruments of the parties' interests. (...) we are the natural and legal auxiliaries of justice; and, for my part, whenever a consultation arises before me, a legal case is formulated, I always see it as if I were a magistrate to whom it was proposed to resolve the law litigated between parties. Therefore, I do not run from responsibility except when my conscience repels it”.
Ruy Barbosa
