Keffer Barnhart LLP’s Top Ten Legal Movies

Everyone has their personal favorite legal movie.  Maybe you love Jack Nicholson screaming, “you can’t handle the truth!”  Or, perhaps, you chuckle every time Joe Pesci tries to say “youths” in his thick accident, and it comes out “yoots.”  Lawyers are no different.  And those of us who spend our days in-and-out of courtrooms still get into legal movies just like everyone else.

So, the trial attorneys at Keffer Barnhart LLP were surveyed, and here are their Top Ten legal movies of all time (with an honorable mention thrown in for good measure).  Some may be what you expect but, if there are any on the list that you haven’t seen, we highly recommend you grab some popcorn and curl up with one of these legal flicks.
