10 Movie Lawyers

21 Mar

“What is the difference between a catfish and a lawyer? One is a scum sucking bottom dweller and the other is a fish”. True dat. However, in the movies sometimes a lawyer is the ‘good guy’. I know, weird, right? See if you can tell the goodies from the baddies with The Movie Lists’ 10 classic litigators.

1.Wilfrid Robarts
Witness For The Prosecution

Makes losing bad look so good.

2.Col. Dax
Paths Of Glory

Between mice and Mausers, he’d take the mice every time.

3.Frank Galvin
The Verdict

Sometimes a little integrity can turn it all around.

4.Paul Biegler
Anatomy of a Murder

Solve the murder and we can all go fishing.

5.Vinny Gambini
My Cousin Vinny

“Your Honor, everything that guy just said is bullshit. Thank you.”

6.Arthur Kirkland
And Justice For All

An ethical defense lawyer disgusted with rampant legal corruption. One of Pacino’s more fantastical lawyers.

7.Henry Drummond
Inherit the Wind

“An idea is a greater monument than a cathedral. And the advance of man’s knowledge is a greater miracle than all the sticks turned to snakes or the parting of the waters.”

8.John Milton
The Devil’s Advocate

Satan himself. A more true-to-life
Pacino lawyer.

9.Thomas More
A Man For All Seasons

“When statesmen forsake their own private conscience for the sake of their public duties, they lead their country by a short route to chaos.

10.Atticus Finch
To Kill A Mockingbird

When it comes to lawyers he’s pretty much the man. And he’s Superman’s favorite too.
