Why do all lawyers lie?

Asked over 2 years ago - Corona Del Mar, CA

Why do the lawyers lie to the client or the potential client? If a minority woman is a potential client for a medical malpractice or personal injury, do they all inevitably try to cheat me?

What are the reasons they make it hard to reach them, tell me things I don't need to know or ask like "there are 'people' waiting for me outside and the car is running, and I got to go, but call me tomorrow firt thing in the morning" or "I didn't get your email (for the 3rd time) so I want you to send it again to me with your phone number" etc.

Are they trying to exert psychological control, trying hard to get, or what kind of games are they playing (and wasting my time)?
