3 Top Legal Films That Everyone Should See

So, it's a Friday afternoon in Florida, and you are bored out of your mind. Sure, you could go somewhere and hang out with friends, but what if that simply sounds like it's too much? Don't fret if that's the case. Instead, how about inviting some companions over for a movie night?

Of course, you can also do this on another occasion, like let's say a Mondy or Saturday morning if you wish. The choice is up to you. 

Thanks to pay-per-view, on-demand, and streaming services, you can pretty much catch any movie on at any time.

Would you rather watch alone? That's an option too. You can kick back in your pajamas and binge your favorite shows. Now, the only question is, "What should you watch?". That obviously depends on you and your likes/dislikes, but the following are some selections you'll appreciate, especially if you're into plots surrounding courtrooms, legal proceedings, and lawyers. 

1. My Cousin Vinny

When you think of legal movies, you might picture them as having boring and stuffy storylines. However, that couldn't be further from the case with My Cousin Vinny, a comedy from 1992 with an R rating. It is about two youngsters from New York accused of murder in Alabama. Once that happens, one of the youths calls in a favor to a family member that's a loud-mouthed attorney without trial experience. Okay, that's all we're saying, for now, so nothing gets spoiled. If you want to feel good, smile, and laugh, give this show featuring Joe Pesci, Marissa Tomei, and Ralph Macchio a chance.

2. Miracle On 34th Street

Miracle on 34th Street could be the perfect option if you're into classic movies with Christmas themes. The film was made in 1947, isn't rated, and stars Edmund Gwenn, Maureen O'Hara, and John Payne. Basically, a divorced New York mother hires someone to play Santa Claus at a Macy's store. The actor's sanity comes into question at some point because he claims to be the real Santa. Then, a lawyer defends him in court, trying to show the judge and jury that the man isn't mistaken.

3. A Few Good Men

Are military movies with legal aspects your cup of tea? A Few Good Men with Tom Cruise, Demi Moore, and Jack Nicholson from 1992 could be the perfect solution. Aaron Sorkin wrote the story, and Rob Reiner directed the film. Marines are accused of murder in this drama. However, they contend that they merely acted under orders and were given legal representation. Cruise plays Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee, a military attorney. The lawyer eventually learns that the story provided by the officials sounds fishy. Thus, he does what it takes to uncover the truth and defend the soldiers.

Client Testimonials

Attorney David Goldman has been exceptional in the process of helping me through the case. He has always been easy to reach, whether by phone or email, and has thorough knowledge and explains clearly in depth so you feel safe and confident in your lawyer

I used Michael Babboni and his paralegal, Nicole Moore for a legal matter. They went above and beyond my expectations. During the entire process there was constant communication with both Michael and Nicole. They were extremely organized and on top of my case, which I am very grateful for. Michael truly had my best interests at heart and he was very genuine. I plan on referring Michael to all family and friends and will continue to use him in the future.

I dealt most with Mr. Fernandez. I didn’t know a lot about this process. He took the time to speak with me individually, in person, to explain everything. It was very helpful to actually know and understand the process and what to expect. He closed my case quickly, which was nice that it was not prolonged! I appreciated his hard work and getting me what I felt I deserved after my car accident. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs an honest and reliable lawyer to assist you with your case!

I hired Mr. Walsh after an automobile accident this past March. He and his entire staff were extremely professional. They kept me informed every step of the way and settled my case in a timely manner. Thank you so much for your help.
