No matter what kind of case you're dealing with, if your side wins…YOU are deemed the winner. Sure the success belongs to your client who has likely paid you thousands upon thousands upon tens of thousands of dollars, but YOU will be the winner. Even in a high profile case where the general public does not like the outcome, you will still be deemed the winner. So if you win your case, you had better be prepared to have a tub of Gatorade poured on your head. But if you lose…well, you can look forward to a lot of Monday morning quarterbacking from the peanut gallery.
