The Law Firm

Show Summary

From award-winning producer David E. Kelley (The Practice, Ally McBeal) comes “The Law Firm,” featuring 12 real lawyers competing against each other for a $250,000 prize. The lawyers, split into two teams, will try real cases in an actual court where the outcomes are legally binding. The managing partner of “The Law Firm” is top trial attorney and legal analyst Roy Black, who decides which of the 12 will be eliminated in each episode. Though early on it was thought that Black would send home a lawyer from the losing team, much like in the "Apprentice," Black has announced that winning a case does not guarantee immunity. Black can send somone home from the winning team if he feels that player was the worst in that case. UPDATE: NBC pulled "The Law Firm" from the schedule after two weeks on the air. The remaining episodes were aired on NBC's sister network, Bravo.

  • interesting to watch in latter part of series ... didnt watch the first 2 episodes and maybe dont need to ... Michael won the $250M pot

    i got to watch the latter part of the season as it was aired overseas. not enough good staff but watching the good few was interesting enough. (in case you are wondering who won, Michael beat Olivier in the final round, though he lost the case) enjoyed it to have watched ... but have not seen the first 2 episodes.
  • I have watched The Law Firm for the past two weeks on NBC, and while I don't love it, it isn't so bad, and it is much better than summer re-runs. It's kind of like The Apprentice for lawyers.moreless

    I have watched The Law Firm for the past two weeks on NBC, and while I don't love it, it isn't so bad, and it is much better than summer re-runs. It's kind of like The Apprentice for lawyers. If other TV shows were on with new episodes, I wouldn't be watching this.
  • I watched the September 13, 2005 episode. I was appalled. No justice here as the lying winners were awarded victory. No ethics. Sleaze wins the day. Disgusting the way the liars celebrated their victory. The honest lwayer got fired. Skip this show!moreless

    1.0
    I watched the September 13, 2005 show where a man sued his former girlfriend for lying to the police. The jury found in favor of the girlfriend. The girlfriend's lawyers knew she lied. They knew the true facts in the case. They still celebrated their vistory based on lies. No justice here. The lawyers will stop at nothing to win. No search for truth. No regard for ethics.



    The lawyer who got fired at the end of the show was truthful. The lying lawyer was not fired.



    This was the first time I watched this show and the last time.



    Shows the legal profession for the sleaze it really is!moreless
  • The Law Firm is an interesting show to watch, but it tries to integrate so many different elements and is only really a mediocre show on most of those levels.

    7.1
    The Law Firm is a legal-based reality show. It centers around 12 real lawyers who are vying to become the top attorney. There's a mix of Judge Judy, The Apprentice, Survivor, and The Practice in this show. On some levels, it's a smart, sophisticated show with a lot of legal intricacies integrated in it. But on many other levels, it's a sensational drama with predictable outcomes. This is Roy Black's only attempt at reality TV, and it is glaringly obvious that he is only doing this show for his ego. He sometimes eliminates a player just to catch the audience off guard, and leaves the person who should have been eliminated on the show. If it had mainly focused on the cases involved, it could have been a great show. If it had mainly focused on the reality show drama, it could have been a great show. But the way it poorly integrates both of those elements together, and the fact that some of the cases are only there for sensationalism, makes the show a little bit less worthwhile than it potentially could have been.moreless
  • This, to me can potentially be better than the Apprentice.

    7.0
    This show is pretty interesting to me so far. I think that I may like it better than the Apprentice because of its unpredictable outcomes. As the summary says, anyone is at risk of being eliminated pending their performance in front of the judge. I think I will be a loyal viewer this season!!!
  • PRODUCER DAVID KELLEY HAS MET WITH FAILURE IN HIS FIRST ATTEMPT AT A REALITY SERIES. THE LAW FIRM HAS BEEN DROPPED FROM ITS NBC PRIME-TIME SLOT AND WILL BE AIRED ON SISTER NETWORK BRAVO FROM NOW ON.
