A courtroom drama and other movies with lawyers in them can be quite riveting. Movies about lawyers and attorneys are some of the most suspenseful, thought-provoking films in the industry! There’s nothing quite like the thrill of a mystery, an act of crime, and the months that go into a trial. We love movies that feature an in your face kind of famous lawyer who will bring up questions we never even thought to ask!
