I have to apologize for my liberal use of quote marks—but I felt they were necessary to qualify those terms. First, by winning I mean that I received a settlement check in response to a demand letter I sent on behalf of a client, so there was no neutral arbitrator to declare me a winner. Second, the issue never got to litigation, so there wasn’t really a case.
But it sure does feel good. Plus, I was pretty proud of how that demand letter came out. The only difficult part of the whole thing was making sure that the settlement check got to my client within a reasonable amount of time.
