Lost and Found

Oakland, Calif., trial lawyer J. Gary Gwilliam doesn’t feel comfortable talking about his losses. He would rather forget them. But he can’t. They have taught him too many valuable lessons.

Gwilliam estimates he has tried more than 175 jury trials to verdict in his 40 years of practice. The vast majority of them have been wins.

But Gwilliam believes that trial lawyers rarely, if ever, learn anything from winning. He thinks that some of life’s most important lessons come from defeat. And he admits to having lost about 30 jury trials in his career.
