From the NACDL Champion (H/T a Defending People reader).
When a group of defense lawyers convene to plan a joint strategy, one of them is about to get screwed. You have one week to figure who it is. If you can’t figure it out after the first week — it’s you.
Be proud of yourself when you take the time to help another defense lawyer with their problem. Be prouder when another defense lawyer takes the time to help you. The sharing of strengths is what distinguishes the criminal defense bar.
Of your ten greatest victories, seven will be deals. Nobody will hear about the deals, but they count just as much.
