Real Lawyer Reacts to For the People (Pilot)

Another legal drama from Shona Rhimes? Oh no. Except this one is kinda realistic! For the People follows the lives of a handful of Federal prosecutors and Federal Public defenders in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York — aka the Mother Court (I really think this show was originally going to be called “The Mother Court” and then they changed the name at the last second. The SDNY is the oldest and most prestigious district court in the nation. The brand new lawyers (including a bunch of Supreme Court Clerks, obviously since this is a Shona Rhimes show) work for both the defense and the prosecution as they handle the most high profile and high stakes cases in the country – all as their personal lives intersect.

Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) [https://bit.ly/2IeeB8W]: Off-the-rack suits NEVER fit right. Indochino makes fully custom suits that fit perfectly using any material I want, with all of the options I want. And they cost 1/3rd of what normal suits costs. I’ve purchased them with my own money for years, so I’m thrilled they are now a sponsor.

▶ Why Ties from TheTieBar? (Free shipping on orders over ) [https://fave.co/2ImLY9I]: Normal ties are too fat. Skinny ties are too skinny. So these days I only wear ties that are exactly 2.5” wide. They are fashionable without being hipster. You see them in all of my videos. TieBar ties are perfect, come in every color I want, and never cost more than .

▶ Why these Tie Clips? [https://amzn.to/2WIQ6EE]: It’s really hard to find affordable tie clips that are the right size (1.5”), look good, and are great quality. These tie bars are all three. Plus the 3-pack gives a variety of styles. They pair perfectly with 2.5” ties from TheTieBar (above).

▶ Why these Pocket Squares? [https://amzn.to/2UfsKtL]: I like my pocket squares perfectly, well, square. Like straight-out-of-Mad-Men square. The only way to do that is with a stiffer material that keeps its shape. I’ve exhaustively tried dozens of pocket squares, and these are by far the best. It’s how I get the perfectly flat pocket square you see in my videos.

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It’s one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. Today I’m taking a break from teaching law students how to crush law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.

Real Lawyer Reacts to My Cousin Vinny (The Most Accurate Legal Comedy?)

Is it possible that the two yutes…excuse me, two YOUTHS…
Get my favorite suits — INDOCHINO — for 50% off + free shipping (plus it helps the channel) https://bit.ly/2IeeB8W

I love My Cousin Vinny. Most lawyers do. It is just a great movie that involves great lawyering. Everyone should watch this movie. But the question is: Is Vinny Gambini a good lawyer? We’ll find out today.

The movies starts with two students driving through the South on their way to California. Once they arrive in Alabama, they stop at a local convenience store to pick up a few snacks. The store clerk is murdered just after they leave and, in a case of mistaken identity, they are fingered for the crime. Facing execution, the students do not have enough money for a lawyer, so they hire their cousin, Vincent Laguardia Gambini (Joe Pesci). After failing the bar 5 times, Vinny has been a lawyer for about six weeks and has to learn the process on the job. Vinny has to defend his clients and battle an uncompromising judge, some tough locals, and even his fiancée, Mona Lisa Vito (Marisa Tomei).

Real Lawyer Reacts to Liar Liar (Part 1)

Real Lawyer Reacts to Liar Liar (Part 1)

Jim Carrey (as attorney Fletcher Reede) is struck by a magic spell and can’t lie. But is he a good lawyer? Today we’re going to review one of the funniest legal movies of all time: Liar Liar. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

★ SUIT UP! Even if you’re not a lawyer, you can still DRESS LIKE A LAWYER. All of my suits are from BlackLapel (I’ve used them exclusively for over five years). Their custom suits are amazing, yet still ridiculously affordable. HIGHLY recommended: https://go.magik.ly/ml/f78n/

The last time I watched Liar Liar, I wasn’t yet an attorney myself. I remember watching Liar Liar years and thinking how cool it would be to become a lawyer myself. That was obviously a long time ago. It was great to be able to watch the movie with fresh eyes and know which parts were realistic and which were not. I practiced in Los Angeles for a long time, so I recognized a lot of my old haunts including the office parks and courthouses. Surprisingly, I think the movie is funnier now having years of experience as an attorney.

Stay tuned until next week when I release my reaction to the second half of the movie. I’m going to go in-depth into whether the prenup is void and whether the wife’s fraud invalidates the entire marriage.

Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments!

Real Lawyer Reacts to Suits (full episode)

Harvey and Mike. Mike and Harvey. Have you ever wanted to know if they’re good lawyers? Today we’re going to find out. Stay until the end for my Legal Accuracy Grade.

SUITS has been highly requested; probably the most requested show on this channel. I think I missed Suits the first time around because I had already graduated from law school when it came out. But I’m glad I got a chance to watch this. This week i’m deconstructing the first episode of Suits.

Real Lawyer Reacts to A Time To Kill (full movie) // LegalEagle

Check out the best documentaries and non-fiction movies on CuriousityStream at https://curiositystream.com/legaleagle LegalEagles get a free account for 31 days.

Unfortunately, racial issues come up in our judicial system. A Time to Kill deals with those issues head-on, in a gripping way.

A Time to Kill stars Samuel L. Jackson as Carl Lee Hailey, a heartbroken father who avenges his daughter’s brutal assault by shooting the bigoted men responsible for the crime as they are on their way to trial. He turns to Jake Brigance (played by Matthew McConaughey) to defend him.

Brigance is a new lawyer who has inherited his firm from a his disbarred mentor, played by Donald Sutherland. Brigance struggles to get Hailey acquitted in this small, segregated Southern town, given Hailey’s race and the deliberate nature of his crimes.

Hailey and Brigance struggle not only against the community’s prejudice is personified by the nefarious prosecutor (played by Kevin Spacey) who tries to rig the trial, often in ways that are completely unconstitutional.

A Time to Kill is based on the book by the same name by John Grisham. This was his first novel — which became a best seller set up Grisham’s entire career.

Even though this was a more serious legal movie than I tend to deal with on this channel, it was fun to take a look at Grisham’s first legal thriller. You can tell that some of the nuance of his later works is missing here, but the story is incredible. I missed this when it came out in 1996 (and I don’t think this one gets played on cable — for obvious reasons).

Real Lawyer Reacts to Better Call Saul (Episode 1)

Why do bad things happen to good lawyers? Before he was Saul Goodman he was Jimmy McGill — but he was always a great lawyer. Today we’re going to review Better Call Saul. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

I loved Breaking Bad. And Saul Goodman was one of my favorite characters. Despite being down on his luck and faking his own name, he somehow always managed to give good legal advice to certain meth dealers in Albuquerque. Not surprisingly I REALLY enjoyed this show.

Real Lawyer Reacts to How to Get Away With Murder (Episode 1)

Annalise Keating is an unorthodox law professor. Instead of being a “good” law professor or actually “teaching” she makes her students unpaid interns for her criminal defense law firm. Drama! Mystery! Legal technicalities! Today we’re going to review How to Get Away With Murder. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

This one was a bear. It made me want to pull my hair out. This show is more soap opera than legal procedural. I’m glad I got through it, but I’m not sure I’m the same man as when i started. Does it get better over time? Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments!
