Lawyers Are Not Your Friends
Unless you own one, are sleeping with one, are related to one, or have some other exceptional relationship with one, no lawyer will ever work for you. You might hire one, pay him exorbitant fees, and even cry on his shoulder, but he will never work for you. He will work firstly for himself and secondly for the court. No matter what he might say or even believe, what is best for you will never be his priority. He will work to protect the legal status quo, to protect the legal system, and especially to line his pockets. Only when all that has been accomplished will he remember you.
