The feeling of winning a long, drawn-out, and difficult case is a wonderful one. Especially when you know that your client was in the right and you have fought passionately and valiantly for their cause. This is the reason that our legal and judicial systems are in place—the reason they are so great (some of the time). There is much pride and glory to be had in this biz. It's very much needed to balance out all of the guilt, shame, and regret you feel the rest of the time.
