Does Robert have any motivations, except not being motivated by high profit? If so: working less? Working more? Doing more interesting work? Working faster? Giving better advice? Helping people to help themselves? Getting recognition? Becoming famous? Having many clients? Helping as many people as possible? Being nice? Helping people for a low price?

Giving better advice? This too. Helping people to help themselves? Getting recognition? Becoming famous? Having many clients? Helping as many people as possible? Being nice? Helping people for a low price? He may have some other motivations as well, but these two are relevant.

Ostap:

**************SPOILER*****************
A young lawyer comes to his father a few months after taking over the family business.
'Dad, I just finished the case you were working on for twenty years!'.
And his father responded:
'You stupid! Our family lived well for twenty years on this case. If you were not so stupid, we could live well another twenty years on it.'


Thanks for playing and congrats to Ostap for putting the pieces together.
