Legal movie dramas are not without their typical heroes and heroines. There’s the selfless lawyer who comes to the rescue of a client with a hopeless case; the lawyer who doesn’t let the rules stand in the way of what her or she sees as justice, or the inexperienced lawyer who succeeds in spite of some gaffes along the way. And many more.
