YDI because a defense attorney always has to prepare for the worst case and you obviously didn't do. Otherwise, you would have seen that very real chance of failure in advance. In case the evidence was so overwhelming that you couldn't have prevented the guilty verdict, with better preparation you might have arranged a plea bargain. Conclusion: Don't trust open-and-shut cases because in the end your clients have to pay for your mistakes.

It was open and shut, they were guilty.

You must have forgotten the #1 rule of defence attourney-ing (I'm making that a verb). When in doubt, should "OBJECTION" at the top of your lungs while pointing at whoever is in the witness box.

It isn't necessarily your fault. Could have been that the guy wasn't honest with you, which would damage his credibility with the jury and judge. Maybe there was some sort of bias in the jury, or evidence turned up that you weren't informed about. The prosecutor also could have just been better than you, but that just means you should do your best to improve. For the record, it's a little odd and slightly uncomfortable to encourage someone to up their manipulation stat.

If his client was found guilty, then most likely the client is guilty of the charges. So, really the client is paying for his own mistakes, not the lawyers.
