I whine enough when we take a tough verdict-- today we took a nice one, for a 33 year old woman with a rare, sad neuro-vascular disorder who was hit by a car when she was in a crosswalk, and ended up suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She'd seen a lot of doctors, but none of them could figure out what her problem was-- my partner finally figured it out, and sent her to a neuropsychologist. The implication defense counsel tried to raise was that we sent this woman to this doctor to puff up her case, instead of what we had actually done, which was to send her to someone who could help her.

It is nicer to take a verdict like that on the receiving end, I can tell you, and both of us feel like we really accomplished something good for our client.
