This week we’re covering the greatest movie Batman movie ever made — perhaps the greatest superhero movie of all time: The Dark Knight.

Today we’re answering two different questions. Since we know the Joker is doing all kinds of illegal things I tallied up all the different crimes to determine HOW MANY life sentences. Because there is a lot of murder. For Batman, we answer the question, can he use the self-defense justification to fight crime? Or is Batman just as guilty as the criminals he fights?

Who is legally responsible for all the death and destruction?

Find out today!

Stay until the end when tally up the sentences for both the Joker and Batman.

Custom Suits:
Tie Clips/Bars:
Pocket Squares:

▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) []: 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 ) []: 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? []: 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? []: 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.
Have you ever watched a movie and thought “that looks illegal.” It probably is! Welcome to Laws Broken, a series on LegalEagle where I tackle your favorite movies and show you how legally irresponsible they are.

As a lawyer, it’s hard for me to watch movies, because I’m constantly thinking about how the main characters are breaking the law or opening themselves up for civil liability. But my pain is your entertainment!

Got a non-legal movie that seems illegal? Let me know in the comments!

An inspiring, uplifting video by Attorney Nikki Kavouklis of Zen 4 Law, a Pinellas, Pasco, Hernando County personal injury law firm. Visit

In her over two decades of practicing law, Nikki has witnessed many changes in the area of personal injury law. These changes have occurred not just with the laws themselves, but in the overall demeanor of clients, fellow lawyers, judges, and healthcare professionals treating personal injury clients.

They became most noticeable after the economic downfall of 2008 when insurance companies began tightening their financial belts. Not only were insurance companies offering less in terms of injury and property damage settlements, budget cuts made throughout the legal system were overburdening defense lawyers and judges, thereby lengthening the time it took to litigate a case and bring it to trial. Insurance payments to healthcare professionals were also being drastically cut, sending many of these professionals out of business.

As an author and inspirational speaker (known by her pen name “Nikki Karis”), Nikki has helped countless people find their power and grow to their full potential. While working on her inspirational projects, she realized there was a need in the legal profession for inspiration, especially with so many clients and fellow professionals feeling overwhelmed by an overburdened, underfunded legal system. Lawyers, judges, and healthcare professionals needed to feel enlightened and inspired about the work they were doing, especially in the area of personal injury law, where clients struggle physically, emotionally, and financially to rebuild their lives.

In September of 2014, Nikki decided to take a brave, bold step into uncharted waters by incorporating inspiration into her legal practice. She changed the name of her law firm from the Law Offices of Nikki M. Kavouklis, P.A. to Zen 4 Law.

When someone visits an attorney, it is often because they are dealing with one of the most difficult obstacles in their lives. Whether it be injury, the death of a loved one, or some other stressful, traumatic life event, they are at a crossroads in their lives. Nikki realizes her clients need not only competent, experienced legal representation, but also inspiration and guidance to come through their legal struggles soundly, with the strength to move forward in their lives.

Contact Zen 4 Law today at 1-844-ZEN-4-LAW for a free consultation in the following areas of practice: auto accidents; motorcycle accidents; slips/trips and falls; wrongful death; medical negligence; nursing home abuse; defective products; defective drugs; defective medical devices; negligent security cases; and any other areas involving personal injury.

A Calling to the Legal Profession –

Since early childhood, Nikki knew she was bound for a career as a lawyer, as she had a passion for writing, speaking, and helping others. In 1989, Nikki earned a bachelor of arts in political science from the University of Florida, followed by her juris doctorate degree in 1992.

On April 19, 1999, Nikki opened her own law firm in Tarpon Springs, Pinellas County, Florida, after leaving her former partnership, focusing exclusively on the area of personal injury law. Since that time, Nikki has expanded her practice into Pasco, Hernando, and Citrus counties.

During her years of practice, Nikki has represented only plaintiffs and has never represented an insurance company. She has brought thousands of cases to settlement and trial since 1992 and continues to expand into new areas involving personal injury claims. She has represented clients for claims involving Fen-Phen, Baycol, Vioxx, Medtronic/Guidant, Zyprexa, hormone replacement therapy, tobacco, and other drug and medical device- related claims and lectured throughout Florida on first-party insurance issues.

Nikki is a member of the Florida Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the Association of Southern Trial Lawyers, the Florida Justice Association, and the Clearwater Bar Association. She is also admitted to practice law in the Middle District of Florida.

Nikki serves clients in Tarpon Springs, New Port Richey, Spring Hill and Brooksville. Contact Zen 4 Law at 1-844-ZEN-4-LAW for more information and a free consultation with Nikki.

Help for Self Represented Domestic Violence Victims in Family Court

Most family court litigants must pursue their cases without counsel, and this burden is even heavier for survivors of domestic violence, many of whom do not disclose the violence to the court or court-related practitioners. The presence of domestic violence complicates the family court case, and the impact of trauma on the family and on survivors’ capacity to manage and effectively pursue their cases must be understood for these litigants to have full access to the courts. This webinar will help those who work with survivors increase their capacity to assist survivors in successfully seeking relief in family court.
