What it gets right: the glamor, nice suits, beautiful people, and penthouses that nearly every lawyer, regardless of their practice, experiences in their everyday.
What it gets wrong: they are often in the office late at night and in many instances even work at home. Real lawyers are not usually in the office late and don’t work very much at all. Law school taught them to work smarter, not harder, and most of them work a solid 30-40 hour week.
Nobody wins that often and a lot more people would have gone to jail/ got disbarred after the stunts they pulled. Sidebar: Louis was right 90% of the time.
