Corporate defense attorneys: do you generally feel good about what you do or is it just a job/ about the $$$?

I like working with sophisticated clients on complex legal issues that are often challenging and interesting. I don’t do it for the money, but it doesn’t hurt!

Joking tone here. U mean clients that think they know everything bc X worked on File 5, It must work on file 8.

I don’t feel bad at all because typically we are doing complex/interesting work, protecting our clients as best we can, and ultimately resolving the case as fairly as possible. Usually when we go to trial and win, the plaintiff/lawyer has already rejected at least one very generous settlement offer (more than the plaintiff or any average person will ever need) and is seemingly shooting for that monster verdict. There are also still a ton of total bs lawsuits being filed for various reasons. Also usually my clients are trying to help people, save lives, or solve a problem (not hurt someone) Not saying the plaintiffs bar is “the bad guy”, by the way. Reasonably avoidable mistakes absolutely do happen, and average folks need a strong and well resourced advocate.

Litigation attorney 1, I appreciate your response and obviously all our responses are subjective. I’m curious as to what region you are saying plaintiffs’ firms are as powerful as defense? Not saying you are wrong, just curious. In my experience most plaintiff’s firms can’t throw armies of lawyers on a case (I’m sure some can, but not most). I think dialogues such as these are very helpful in getting perspective on what the other side is going through, even if they are difficult. I generally, am not trying to make other lawyers lives difficult just to do so- it’s generally unintentional.
