Vinny: Uh, everything that guy just said is bullshit. Thank you.

Jim Trotter: Objection, Your Honor, counsel's entire opening statement is argument.

Judge Haller: Objection sustained. Counsel's entire opening statement, with the exception of "thank you," will be stricken from the record.

6. Lawrence and Kenneth Preston: The Defenders, 1961-65

Before its time: " It starred E. G. Marshall and Robert Reed as father-and-son defense attorneys who specialized in legally complex cases, with defendants such as neo-Nazis, conscientious objectors, demonstrators of the Civil Rights Movement, a schoolteacher fired for being an atheist, an author accused of pornography, and a physician charged in a mercy killing.[1] It was created by television writer Reginald Rose.


The Museum of Broadcast Communications called it "perhaps the most socially conscious series the medium has ever seen", a show "singularly resonant with New Frontier liberalism".[1]

12. Ah man! I was going to post that!

And E. G. Marshall was one of those great actors who played things sota voce, a soft spoken characterization, even when his character became angry. Consider him in Tora, Tora, Tora, softly rational when the whole world was breaking into war.

My family watched every episode of The Defenders. Gritty television! A great cast.

Try a Christmas without Snow. No lawyers.

29. Frank Galvin (Paul Newman) in The Verdict

[Frank is giving his summation to the jury]
Frank Galvin: You know, so much of the time we're just lost. We say, "Please, God, tell us what is right; tell us what is true." And there is no justice: the rich win, the poor are powerless. We become tired of hearing people lie. And after a time, we become dead... a little dead. We think of ourselves as victims... and we become victims. We become... we become weak. We doubt ourselves, we doubt our beliefs. We doubt our institutions. And we doubt the law. But today you are the law. You ARE the law. Not some book... not the lawyers... not the, a marble statue... or the trappings of the court. See those are just symbols of our desire to be just. They are... they are, in fact, a prayer: a fervent and a frightened prayer. In my religion, they say, "Act as if ye had faith... and faith will be given to you." IF... if we are to have faith in justice, we need only to believe in ourselves. And ACT with justice. See, I believe there is justice in our hearts.

52. Clarence Darrow

Today, Clarence Darrow is remembered for his reputation as a fierce litigator who, in many cases, championed the cause of the underdog; because of this, he is generally regarded as one of the greatest criminal defense lawyers in American history
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clarence_Darrow
Local guy with lots of history here and scopes trial I guess that's why I'll pick him
According to legend, before he died, Darrow declared that if there was an afterlife, he would return on the small bridge (now known as the Clarence Darrow Memorial Bridge) located just south of the Museum of Science and Industry in Hyde Park, Chicago on the date of his death. Darrow was skeptical of a belief in life after death (he is reported to have said: "Every man knows when his life began... If I did not exist in the past, why should I, or could I, exist in the future?"but he made this promise to dissuade mediums from charging people money to "talk" to his spirit. People still gather on the bridge in the hopes of seeing his ghost.
