* The results above are exceptional and not the rule. Defendants do not pay all attorney’s clients the same, far from it — especially in larger cases. How much the defendants ultimately pay is based on the nature and reputation of the plaintiffs’ lawyer, in addition to how that lawyer puts the case together.
