The luckiest lawyers in the Philippines…
Atty. Leonard De Vera. Lawyer for Grace Ibuna
Atty. Lorna Kapunan. Lawyer for Aleli Arroyo

Ignacio “Ignacio” Arroyo will inherit the millions pesos (or billions of pesos according to Senator Ping Lacson) that the latter left behind.

On the other hand, the unluckiest Lawyers are the following:

From day one, the impeachment prosecutors from House of Representatives seemed to have enrolled themselves in the Mandatory Continuing Legal Education (MCLE) classes of Senator Judge-Presiding Officer Juan Ponce Enrile and veteran justice of the Supreme Court, Serafin Cuevas. All who went to the rostrum were subjected to severe lectures as if they have not read the basic of laws and procedure.
