Hopefully, none of us ever have to face arrest – not only is it difficult to get back on your feet, but even just finding competent legal help can prove to be challenging.
Of course, it helps to visualize and plan ahead when it’s all in good fun. One Reddit thread asked people which fictitious lawyer people would call if they were ever arrested. Answers ranged from the obvious to the hilarious. Here are some that stood out.
And they explained why.
“I’ve heard Matlock is a good choice. For ten grand, he’ll actually sit behind you in court and read the paper. For $15,000, he’ll actually sit at the defense table. For $20,000, he’ll twice lean forward and whisper something in your ear.
You can’t argue with that kind of value.”—Prox
9. Well, If You’re Arrested for Murder…
This choice makes sense.
“Annalise Keating, obviously.”—notisabellefromacnl
8. A Great Choice
Especially if you’ve been near mockingbirds.
7. A Lawyer with Great Credentials
The only thing that should influence this kind of choice.
“Jeff Winger from Community.
He was actually a good lawyer, plus maybe I could get to be on Troy and Abed in the Morning to discuss the case.”—-eDgAR-
6. Kind, Fashionable, and Smart
She commands the room by being in it or kills the room with kindness.
5. Comic Book Lawyers Welcome
And this one is qualified!
“Jennifer Susan Walters, AKA She-Hulk.
Private attorney, adventurer; formerly bounty hunter, S.H.I.E.L.D. agent, actress, mine slave, Magistra of the Living Tribunal, NYC Assistant District Attorney.
Law degree from UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles).”—Rinne_Uchiha_Madara
4. Might as Well Pick Daredevil
He may accept a live chicken as payment!
“Matt Murdock for sure.”—itsyerboyskinnypenis
3. A Lawyer That Can’t Lie
At least he’ll have integrity!
“Fletcher from Liar Liar.
Fletcher: Your Honor, I object!
Fletcher: Because it’s devastating to my case!
Fletcher: Good call!”—JompaRacing
2. Or Maybe, a Lawyer That Totally Lies
Case in point:
People forget before he was the greatest peewee hockey coach of all time he was the sleaziest defense attorney in Minnesota.
‘You really stooped to an all-time low on this one, Bombay.’
‘I’m insulted by that, Frank, you have no idea how low I can stoop.'”—Laymans_Terms19
1. Saul Goodman
He’ll win your case and commit crimes with you.
“Better Call Saul.”—NicolasMithra
