What A Lawyer Can't Do

Guarantee results — A lawyer cannot promise a result. It is ethically prohibited as well as impossible as a practical matter. No lawyer can tell you what a DA or judge or jury will say. If a lawyer does promise you a positive result, run the other way and report them to the State Bar.

Charge a fee contingent upon a result — You cannot tell a lawyer that you will pay them only if they get your criminal case dismissed or criminal charges reduced.

Suborn (encourage or facilitate) perjury — You cannot ask your lawyer to submit false information to the court or to the prosecutor or anyone else for that matter.
