Mike Tyson on (His) Lawyers

As a lawyer, become your client.

... Listen, if you have a lawyer, sometimes you can get out of trouble. I've gotten into a lot of trouble because I didn't have a lawyer. I've also had some bad lawyers, too. But the good ones, the ones I liked, they became me. They became whatever situation I was involved in. When I felt pain, so did they. When I succeeded, so did they. They became me. They became whatever the situation was that they became involved with.

They have to be one with you - like my team. We need to sync. When you lose, the money doesn't mean anything to [my lawyer]; he lost too! The fact that [my lawyer] wants to win is more important than his finances. Just like a fighter, it's about the win, not about the pain. You know, when he won, he helped somebody, and that's more important than the money."

- Mike Tyson

I agree with Tyson on most parts, except how he sees winning as the end goal of legal battles.

The law is not about the winners and losers, as it may be in competitions; the law should be about what's right and true. And sometimes, that means losing.
