    That's hardly an interview.

    Call your local bar association and see if they can get you an attorney to volunteer to sit down and speak with you.

    1. Please tell me about your background (where did you graduate, what are your achievements,.etc.).

    Hello, my name is Benjamin Leighton "Ben" Matlock.
    I grew up in Georgia.
    My father owned a garage and gas station.
    I graduated from Harvard Law.


    2. Please tell me more about yourself (what are your goals in life, what is it like to be a lawyer like you, etc.).

    I'm a renowned, sexy, studly, folksy and popular though cantankerous attorney. Usually, at the end of my cases, the person who is on the stand being questioned by me is the actual perpetrator, and I always will expose him or her, despite making clear that my one goal is to prove reasonable doubt in the case of my client's guilt or to prove my client's innocence.


    3. Please tell me about your responsibilities and duties to your client.

    I studied law at Harvard, and after several years as a public defender, established my luxury law practice in Atlanta, living in a modest home in a neighboring suburb. I am known to visit crime scenes to discover clues otherwise overlooked and come up with viable, alternative theories of the crime in question (usually murder). My taste in my dress is immaculate as I have a rather unique, albeit quirky fashion sense; I generally appear in court wearing my trademark seersucker suit and only drive Ford Crown Victorias—always an all-gray model.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH

    I'm a lawyer who has specialized in trial work, and in a lot of criminal work...I'm a specialist on getting people out of trouble.

    They come to me when they're in all sorts of trouble, and I work their troubles out for them.

    If you look me up through some family lawyer or some corporation lawyer, he'll probably tell you that I'm a shyster.

    If you look me up through some chap in the District Attorney's office, he'll tell you that I'm a dangerous antagonist but he doesn't know very much about me.

    My name is Perry Mason.
    I never went to law school.
    I read the law under the tutelage of Abe Lincoln.
    I passed the California bar on my 33rd try.
    Yes, I'm that darn good.

    I believe an attorney doesn't have to sit back and wait until a witness gets on the stand and then test his recollection simply by asking him questions.

    If facts can be shuffled in such a way that it will confuse a witness who isn't absolutely certain of his story, and if the attorney doesn't suppress, conceal, or distort any of the actual evidence, I claim the attorney is within his rights.

    Yeah, I'm kinda slick and clever.
    But, I'm no clown.

    My motto is: If the money's RIGHT, you'll walk TONIGHT!!!

    By the way, I don't own a car.
    I prefer to walk, use public transportation, or an occasional taxi.

    They call me THE LINCOLN LAWYER.
    My name is Mickey Haller.

    I work out of my chauffeur-driven Lincoln Town Car rather than an office.

    My chauffeur is a big guy, who is also my bodyguard.

    I'm hired by the wealthy and the powerful to get them outta big trouble.

    My special pals are biker thugs and meth dealers.
    They are also my muscle.

    Hey, watch my movie:




    You feel me, homie?

    My name is Willie Gingrich. I am an ambulance chasing personal injury attorney also known as Whiplash Willie. I am well known for suing CBS, the Cleveland Browns, and Cleveland Stadium for injuries sustained by my brother-in-law Harry Hinkle when player "Boom Boom" Jackson ran into him and knocked him over. Harry's injury was minor but I manipulated him into faking a more serious injury so we could get a big settlement from the insurance company.

    And so much movie and TV trivia, too.

    PS: What are trophy points? When do I get my trophy? Do I have to give an acceptance speech?

    Trophy points eventually yield trophies.
    I have yet to see one.
    I suspect it takes many trophy points to get one.

    Yes, when you receive one, I'm sure there'll be an awards ceremony.

    Eventually, you receive your choice of a miniature unicorn, or a leprechaun.

    Well, this site is unique with its imaginary trophy points and imaginary trophies. I like it.

    I like it, too.

    Its a little community helping each other.

    Its just a small, peaceful (usually) corner of the internet, but I learn something everyday, and we do help people.
