My basic is much more than what these silly litigation lawyers get.
When the highly paid lawyers argue and win cases it is ok. But is there any mechanism to ensure that such highly paid lawyers do not have any social or other ties with judges?

To bow to Mammon is but human frailty. Are our judges insulated from bowing before someone who gets more than them? Kindly note that I am not specifically pointing out any particular judge for being corrupt nor am I commenting on corruption in the judiciary. This is just an attempt to point out a basic human trait and a systemic deficiency which may be a possible reason why some lawyers win more cases. Is it reasonable to expect that honest men in India can ever afford such fees?
You must be kidding!!! I guess we are being ripped off by him then
They are the best brains in the country who assist the judges in laying down the law of the land by interpreting the provisions of law in right perspective with social responsibility. Common people get benefitted from the judgements passed by the courts with their assisstance. If they charge less and become affordable they will not be able to do justice to the briefs and quality will be the casuality. Good advocates follow them and help common man reap the benefits of their wisdom, legal acumen and presentation skills.
Where do the common people go? If they can't afford such exorbitant legal fees? The side with the deeper pockets have better chances of winning a case because they can afford a better/heavy hitter lawyer
