Let's not be too hard on the lawyers, who are under a fiduciary duty to do their best for their client. Sometimes those Hail Mary passes carry the day, and if you do not try, you never know. And sometimes
representing bad guys is like holding a wolf by the ears, where at the end of the day the trick is to get away without getting bitten by your own client.
