Why did you decide to become a lawyer? Was it because of amazing attorneys you idolized as a kid? Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson, Ruth Bader Ginsburg?

No way! It was because of the awesome legal eagles you saw in the movies. You wanted to mesmerize that jury, defend the innocent, prosecute the guilty, and look damn fine doing it.

As an attorney and big movie buff, I have strong feelings about who the best lawyers in movie history are.
