Long Hours We Work As Litigation Lawyer in China

I have had trial last until midnight in three separate trials.  The court had a compressed schedule and the trial could not run into the next week.  As a litigation lawyer, I had to get the case to the judge by the time we left in both cases.  Closing arguments started the next morning at 9.  They were not all-nighters, but very little sleep.  It is amazing the adrenaline flowing during a full day trial.  You can survive without much sleep.

As a trial attorneys I just concluded their day at 10 p.m. tonight , having started at 8:30 a.m. this morning.  A 13 and a half hour day .  And they have to be in court tomorrow at 8 a.m. 

Just wondering if any of my colleagues in other Chinese cities put in long hours in the courtroom like they did , and whether those guys go without sleep in order to prepare for court the next day. As a trial attorney you have to choice -  litigate the case in court again and again.
