The post currently already has 71.4K Views and several retweets. Additionally, several users have also shared their reactions to it.
One Twitter user said, “An individual might have his/her priorities. A lot of my peers don’t like going to the courts as sometimes it even lacks basic amenities like women’s washrooms. Stop imposing your standards on everyone else. And yes, bless this generation for standing up.”
“Really wonder if such lawyers will ever be able to make the ‘mark’ as #advocates in the longer run! You cannot at all run away from #Courts! #God bless today’s Graduates (many of whom are arrogant & crib at the same time for being a First. Gen. #Lawyer)”, another said.
“If you can’t get his hourly output to justify paying him 40 bucks an hour, the problem must be elsewhere. Also, appreciate his clarity and honesty. He isn’t overpromising at the outset. @warikoo“, another user said.
