Even if you settle your case outside of court, either on your own, through your attorneys, or in mediation, chances are there is going to be a lot of compromise. So unless your spouse is incredibly accommodating, again, you probably aren't going to get everything you want.
How to "win" your divorce
However, a good attorney can help you in those gray areas of the law. Since every divorce is different, it is impossible for the legislature to predict and account for every possible scenario. And often the division of assets and even custody/visitation disputes are not black and white. In the end, both parties generally get what they are entitled to under the law, but a good attorney can often get more for their client based on these gray areas. So both parties are treated relatively fairly, no one "lost", but one part got more of the gray area, and therefore a "win".
In addition, mediation gives you the opportunity to be in control of the solution. Instead of having issues decided for you, you have a hand in determining the best outcome for your case. Your attorney is there to make sure you don't get too out of control with your graciousness and selflessness, and ensure that the things that are most important to you are accounted for, discussed, and resolved.
