An attorney is an officer of the Court. It is an attorney's duty to [interview witnesses in advance of the trial and] present evidence on behalf of a client, to make proper objections, and to argue fully a client's cause. However, the argument or other remarks of an attorney [,except admissions and stipulations noted in the course of the trial,] must not be considered by you as evidence.
If counsel or I have made any comments or statements concerning the evidence which you find are not supported by the evidence, you should disregard them and rely on your own recollection or observation.
If counsel have made any statements as to the law which are not supported by these instructions, you should disregard those statements.
