I just came across an interesting blog post by one of my favorite bloggers, Seth Godin, entitled "Won By A Walk." In this post, he highlights how commentators on a recent New York Mets game, as is often the case in sporting events, attribute the outcome of the game to a relatively insignificant play - in this case a walk - when in truth, that play which ended the game was only made possible by that which preceded it, e.g., the runners who got on base before that fateful walk.
I think the same is true regarding lawsuits, whether they be in the small business context, defective products or personal injury; although trial lawyers often get the glory, the rewards you reap at the end of the case are often sown in the preparation and work that you did to get to that point. Otherwise, the "walk" could end up just getting you a runner on base rather than driving in the winning run.
