 Retired Harvard Law School professor Alan Dershowitz would tell his students the oft-repeated secret to good lawyering. 

“When the law is on your side,” Dershowitz would say, “pound the law into the table. When the facts are on your side, pound the facts into the table. And when neither the law nor the facts are on your side, just pound the table.”
