Your post reminds me of the experience of a not-so-greedy trial lawyer. He had a client who had a personal injury claim against a government agency, and was facing a viable governmental immunity defense. The lawyer nonetheless obtained a very healthy six figure settlement offer, which he described to the client. The client thought seven figures would be more reasonable. The lawyer suggested that he ask a couple of other personal injury lawyers if it was a good offer. The client followed that advice, one of those lawyers poached the case, and within a couple of months they lost a summary disposition motion on the issue based on the governmental immunity defense.
