In certain emotionally charged cases, especially those involving domestic issues, defense lawyers realize that while the facts may be unfavorable for their clients, they may still win the case if the jury sympathize with the defendant’s plight

A. defense lawyers realize that while the facts may be unfavorable for their clients, they may still win the case if the jury sympathize with the defendant’s plight (The jury is collective noun and requires singular verb)
B. the realization by defense lawyers is that the while the facts may be unfavorable towards their clients, they may still win the case if the jury sympathize with the plight of the defendant (Same as A)
C. defense lawyers realize that while the facts may be unfavorable to their client’s case, they may still win if the jury sympathizes with the defendant’s plight (Correct)
D. defense lawyers realize that while the facts may be unfavorable towards their client, they may still win if the jury sympathizes with the defendant’s plight (Facts are related to client's case not client)
E. defense lawyers realize that although the facts may be unfavorable for their client, they might still win if the jury sympathizes with their plight (Might show remote possibility of winning the case.It changes the intended meaning of original sentence)

Kudos please if you like my explanation!

Although C is the best among the lot ...
defense lawyers -- client's case ..
i was thinking , client's case should be client's cases
Any thought on this ???

E. defense lawyers realize that although the facts may be unfavorable for their client, they might still win if the jury sympathizes with their plight

It is just not possible to make out what this question wants to impress. One thing is clear that the 'they' may not refer to the Jury since jury is a collective noun taken mostly as singular and therefore, we may dump A and B. Or, "they" may refer more to the lawyers than the to the clients since 'lawyers' is the subject of the main clause, rather than client, which is only the object of the preposition
However, what is not clear is why the topic just mentions a client and not several clients or defendants since there are many cases and many defendants or many clients. One cannot have many cases and many lawyers for defending one single client or one defendant as choices C, D, and E state.
Other splits are not as critical as those above and there are no definitive clues for fixing the pivotal incongruities.
