Posted on: | by Christine Anne George | 3 Comments

Oh what a long, strange journey it’s been. First you called the Best Mediation/Negotiation. Then you called Best Courtroom Scene. Last week you decided that Eric Stratton’s future as a lawyer was shiny and bright. Now, as we enter our final week,  it’s time to consider the other end of the spectrum—and one of the most contested categories—who is the best of the best?

Many in the legal profession can point to a particular character on the silver screen and say, “That’s why I became a lawyer.” (Or, those outside the profession can say, “This character gives me hope that not all lawyers are awful.”) Inquiring minds want to know—which lawyer is the one that does it for you? If you would like to see an example of the nominees’ work, please click on their names. Please note: these clips may contain NSFW language.
