Villainess Is Changing Her Role To A BroCon - Chapter 216
Danielle would be the youngest person ever to pass the bar exam if he was admitted into law at the age of 18.
Furthermore, the qualification examination itself was known as the most difficult of all examinations. Passing it at the age of 18 would usually be deemed impossible.
“Oh, and if you’re a man of virtue, you should have known me through my father’s connections. My father’s name is Maxim Regal, and he was the royal family’s legal advisor. He is no longer a member of the royal family and now serves as the Secretary of the Grand Chamber of Justice.”
The hall was now crazed.
The Grand Chamber oversees the judiciary of the Crown. If the person was its Secretary, he would be the highest authority in the legal circles of the Empire.
“My father had the privilege of knowing Alexei’s grandfather, Prince Sergei. He was a noble man who knew that his words and actions could affect many people.”
“Now, let me begin by saying that I, Danielle Regal, grew up reading law books instead of picture books for children, and that my conversations with my father were like courtroom arguments. I may have been a lawyer for only 12 years, but please do not judge me based on that. I will do my best to live up to the trust of His Excellency Alexei, who has made a young man like me a legal advisor to the Duke’s family.”
Danielle bowed politely with his hand on his chest.
If he had been trained in legal knowledge and courtroom debate skills since he was a baby by the highest authority in the legal profession, it was no surprise that he had been admitted to the profession at the age of 18. This young lawyer was not to be underestimated. And a 12-year career was not a brief one.
Novadine’s eyes were swimming.
No one in the hall who he looked to for help made eye contact with him. Not even his cronies. Some were even sneaking away in the crowd.
It must have been unexpected that Alexei would handle the situation so calmly and dispassionately.
Common sense dictates that one should honor one’s late father’s wishes, even if they are not legally required to do so. Moreover, the letter was signed by her grandmother, Princess Alexandra. Even if Alexei did not want to marry Keira, it would be natural to settle the matter without any complaints.
If there were no other complaints, Novadine was going to say that Alexei had also agreed to the engagement.
But the lawyer came to the conclusion that [Alexandre and Alexandra did not actually want this engagement]. The people in the hall were satisfied with that conclusion. And the lawyer, a super-elite, also used a dramatic dialogue to expose his father’s status as the highest authority in the legal profession.
Novadine no longer had the cards in his hand to change the atmosphere. His cronies knew it, too.
He pretended to have a trump card, and he had been acting tough and arrogant even towards Alexei in order to maintain his persuasive power. Now, the plating was completely off.
Novadine fell to his knees.
A high-pitched voice rang out.
It was Keira who shouted. She glared at the lawyer with angry eyes, and then blurted out more.
“Alexandre-sama, uncle, took really good care of me. He always told me in his sweet voice that Keira was a sweet girl and that he considered me to be his own daughter. He loved me the most! That’s why he wanted me to become a duchess! He wanted me to be his real daughter!”
The sound of the whipping voice made Keira shudder.
Alexei stepped up to his sister and gently covered her ears with his hands.
“Ekaterina, you don’t need to hear these words.”
“Big Brother… Don’t worry.”
Ekaterina looked up at her brother and smiled.
