Or at least they should be!

Attorneys Richard Strassberg and Marc Mukasey are key players in two major coming trials: the civil mortgage-fraud trial against Bank of America Corp., which is scheduled to begin this week, and the criminal insider-trading trial of former SAC Capital Advisors LP portfolio manager Mathew Martoma, slated for November….

In the mortgage-fraud trial, Messrs. Strassberg and Mukasey will be sitting shoulder to shoulder defending Bank of America and a former executive. In the insider-trading case, the attorneys will likely be rivals. Mr. Strassberg is representing Mr. Martoma, while Mr. Mukasey is representing a doctor expected to be the prosecution's star witness against the former hedge-fund trader….

"Marc is a terrific attorney so it's not surprising that he's in some of the most high-profile cases, but he's going to do what he needs to do and so will I," said Mr. Strassberg.

Mr. Mukasey was similarly polite.

"Rich and I have been friends for years, ever since we tried a case together at the U.S. attorney's office," he said. "I know he'll fight hard for his client in both cases, and I'll fight hard for mine."
