If the lawyer was an animal, or a plant which one would it be ?
A mythical dog both guard and current

The definition of law in 10 words maximum
The alternative to violence, physical

The first virtue of a lawyer

The worst vice of a lawyer

Your main strength

Your main weakness
The laziness

The strength you value most in others
The mind

The weakness that bother you most in others
The language of wood

Your job if you had not been a lawyer

Your passions outside of your work
Music and digital mutation

Your motto
Always understand, never depend

Your obsession

Best use of your time off
A meal with friends
