Courtroom scenes and the life of lawyers are some of the most popular things to watch on TV or Netflix. The movies and serials that depict such scenes seem to be so dynamic and at the same time exhilarating. We do have some of the most famous and noteworthy freedom fighters of our country who were great lawyers. The names BR Ambedkar and Gandhi are quite famous in this list.
But now let us talk about the lawyers who are popular on our television and on the series that we regularly watch. And mind you! I ll be talking about the cartoon characters as well that you may have forgotten!
1. Lionel Hutz, The Simpsons
Well for those who even now watch Simpsons, Lionel Hutz is a popular character. Hutz’s law firm was called “I can’t believe it’s a law firm”, and even though he was the money minded typical sort of lawyer, his part was hilariously done. In the comedy show, he uses the phone booth as an office. For a funny yet good animated show, the Simpsons is one of the best shows.
2. Amitabh Bachan, Pink
The Pink portrayed one of the most important lessons on why boys need a mindset change and how consent is important in any relationship. Though a serious movie, we cannot forget Mr Bachan’s role as a lawyer and his end statement, A no means no!
3. Harvey Specter, Suits
Who can forget Harvey Specter from the American show Suits. He is seen to be a graduate of the most famous law school, Harvard and at the same time is so charming! Who doesn’t want to be a lawyer like him! This series has actually changed the notion of boring lawyers and instead depicted a glamorous world of law, especially corporate law.
4. Arshad Warsi and Akshay Kumar, Jolly LLB
Who hasn’t watched both the parts of Jolly LLB. Though both the parts are hilarious, but both showed the good sides of the lawyer as well. Both the parts of Jolly LLB brought a serious as well as laughable scene of the lawyer’s life.
5. She-Hulk, Marvel
This one is for all the Marvel fans out there! Marvel has quite a number of lawyer characters, but the most famous and powerful out of all is Lady Green. She has been depicted as one of the powerful attorneys.
6. Tom Cruise, A Few Good Men
The role of Daniel Kaffee as Tom Cruise is one of the brilliant characters. A Few Good Men is a 1992 legal drama, but it’s still one of the good movies. He was portrayed as a lawyer whom every woman wants and on top of his great looks, he has a sharp brain as well! Do watch this movie if you haven’t yet!
7. Tom Hagen, The Godfather
For all the book lovers out there, you must have read The Godfather and already know Mr. Tom Hagen. He is the family lawyer and the most trusted advisor of the mafia clan.
8. Ally McBeal, Ally McBeal
Many people might not have heard of this famous American TV series, but a lot of teenage girls actually wanted to become lawyers after watching this series. It’s the life of a young lawyer who is ambitious and the other parts of her life are also explored. Also it talks about the beauty with brains with strong lawyer skills.
9. Alan Shore, Boston Legal
The quintessential legal drama, Boston Legal’s Alan Shore is a role that no one can forget. He is a widower and a lawyer with great wit and a sympathetic tone. He’s also helping out his clients in some of the most efficient yet unethical ways.
10. Harvey Dent, Batman series
Harvey was the District Attorney in the Batman series having a deep seated psychological trauma after repression of anger for years. He is shown to be a person having 2 personalities, one of them is the evil side after he loses his temper.
So that’s about it! I do hope you watch the movies and shows to better understand the characters that have been mentioned above. And I am assuming by reading the fantastic fictional character depictions, you already want to wear that black suit of the lawyer’s!
