Working in the legal system isn't about winning—it's about making money and making your parents proud (must be nice!). But those "gotcha!" moments in a case, when a lawyer realizes they're pretty much guaranteed to win, still must feel pretty damn good.
1.) From Cincosirenitas:
My client was riding his motorcycle on a relatively calm street when this guy exited his garage, without looking, and run over him. In deposition, the guy brought a witness that was with him on the passenger seat. The whole time, the witness maintained that my client was driving too fast and that there was no time to brake the car. I asked him the same question a few times in different ways, making him tell the story again.
In the fourth telling, he, already a bit frustrated, let it slip: “- Look, I’ve already told you. We were exiting the garage and, as soon as I lifted up from getting my cellphone on the car’s carpet-” “- Wait. So you didn’t even see the crash?” There was no coming back from that.
