Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

  • Rudy Baylor on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#6) Rudy Baylor

    • The Rainmaker

    Notable Defense Tactics: Rudy Baylor represents Dot and Buddy Black in the case against Great Benefit, an insurance company that denies their claim for a bone marrow transplant, which could have saved their son, Donny Ray, from succumbing to leukemia.

    He's an incredibly gifted cross-examiner, and this proves helpful during the trial, as it is his cross-examination of Great Benefit's president that leads to him winning the case.

    Biggest Win: Dot and Buddy Black vs. Great Benefit

    Biggest Loss: Dot and Buddy Black vs. Great Benefit. Winning with punitive damages enables the company to declare bankruptcy, which means nobody got any money: his biggest win is also his biggest loss. Baylor opts to teach law instead of practice it, as any further cases would likely see his "success" as unrealistic expectations moving forward.

  • Lt. Daniel Kaffee on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#5) Lt. Daniel Kaffee

    • A Few Good Men

    Notable Defense Tactics: Lt. Daniel Kaffee is tasked with defending Lance Corporal Harold Dawson and Private First Class Louden Downey. As he investigates the offense, it becomes clear that Commanding Officer of Guantanamo Bay Naval Base Colonel Nathan Jessup is responsible for the demise his clients are charged with committing.

    Through cross-examination, Lt. Kaffee manages to get Jessup to admit that he ordered the Code Red, which led to the loss of Private First Class William Santiago. This proves his clients followed orders from on-high, and landed Jessup in a court-martial of his own.

    Biggest Win: The Court-Martial of Lance Corporal Harold Dawson and Private First Class Louden Downey

    Biggest Loss: The Court-Martial of Lance Corporal Harold Dawson and Private First Class Louden Downey. He both won and lost the case because the two men are cleared of the original accusation but found guilty of "conduct unbecoming," resulting in their dishonorable discharge. Despite this aspect of losing that aspect of the case, he saves them from a far more severe punishment, which would likely have been life in prison.

  • Michael Clayton on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#14) Michael Clayton

    • Michael Clayton

    Notable Defense Tactics: Michael Clayton may have a law degree, but he's not so much a trial attorney as he is a fixer for some very bad people. He's not a fan of the work he does, but that doesn't mean he isn't good at doing it. In the movie, the firm he works for is representing U-North in a 6-year-long class-action lawsuit, and the company is not only guilty, there's evidence of their approval to manufacture a known carcinogen. The evidence results in the loss of Clayton's friend.

    Clayton uses his skills of negotiation well throughout his time dealing with the evidence, despite the attempt made on his life. In the end, he tricks the executive of U-North to pay him in exchange for his silence, which he gets on tape, leading to her apprehension.

    Biggest Win: Unknown in terms of any court proceedings, but he certainly wins in the end by outsmarting the film's antagonists.

    Biggest Loss: Unknown

  • Atticus Finch on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#1) Atticus Finch

    • To Kill a Mockingbird

    Notable Defense Tactics: Atticus Finch is tasked with defending Tom Robinson, a Black man accused of assaulting a white woman named Mayella Ewell. The story is set in Maycomb, AL, during the Great Depression, which isn't exactly a safe time for a Black man, especially those caught in this sort of predicament. Finch manages to prove that Mayella and her father, Bob Ewell, are lying and lack credibility.

    His work in the trial proves that Mayella made suggestive advances toward Tom, not the other way around. Unfortunately, the jury still votes to convict Tom, and he perishes trying to escape from prison before Atticus could challenge the verdict at appeal.

    Biggest Win: Finch doesn't win the case in trial, but he proves the Ewells lack credibility. In a way, he wins and loses the case at the same time.

    Biggest Loss: The People vs. Tom Robinson

  • Joe Miller on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#3) Joe Miller

    • Philadelphia

    Notable Defense Tactics: Despite his discomfort at first, Joe Miller agrees to represent Andrew Beckett in his wrongful termination case, which Beckett believes is the result of his manifestation of AIDS. Proving that Beckett was fired for having the disease is no easy task, but Miller manages to do it by tirelessly picking apart numerous stories and innuendo around Beckett's employment; he is able to win the case in the end.

    One of the most telling scenes in the movie involves Miller asking Beckett to take off his shirt so he could show the court an example of the lesions he was showing shortly before he was fired. The shocking revelation helps convince the jury that not only was Beckett fired for having AIDS, but that he deserves punitive damages totaling $5 million.

    Biggest Win: Andrew Beckett vs. Baker McKenzie

    Biggest Loss: The central trial of the film is the one involving Andrew, which he wins, but in the beginning, both attorneys are representing their respective parties against one another in a different lawsuit. The details of the case aren't explored in much length, but Miller loses the case to Beckett.

  • Jake Tyler Brigance on Random Defense Attorneys From Movies You’d Hire To Get You Out Of A Pickl

    (#2) Jake Tyler Brigance

    • A Time to Kill

    Notable Defense Tactics: After his daughter is viciously assaulted and beaten, Carl Lee Hailey goes into the courthouse and slays both of the guilty parties. He is immediately taken into custody, then chooses Jake Brigance to represent him.

    Brigance is concerned he can't get an acquittal, but his closing arguments describe, in painstaking detail, what the young girl went through. When he is finished, he asks them to "now imagine she's white." This helps convince the jury, and Hailey is acquitted.

    Biggest Win: The People vs. Carl Lee Hailey

    Biggest Loss: Unknown
