Lawyers on Their Favorite TV Lawyers

TV Lawyer

In the latest READERS RESPOND, we asked attorneys to tell us who their favorite TV lawyers are (we’ll also accept movie lawyers and Broadway lawyers) and why. 

Jack from Law and Order. I liked his character because he was gritty, intelligent, principled, passionate about his beliefs, and had a wry sense of humor.   
I spent a lot of time watching Matlock in college, so I’ll always have a soft spot for his quick wit and southern charm, but my favorite is Alicia Florrick in The Good Wife.  She’s the perfect combination of a rockstar attorney and a loving mom.
Denny Crane from Boston Legal. He was such a great bullshitter and had great lines.
Jack McCoy and Abbie Carmichael from Law & Order. They got me through law school.
