The Lincoln Lawyer (Review) – An Entertaining Legal Drama

The Lincoln Lawyer is an American legal drama series۔ It’s created for Netflix by David E. Kelley and developed by Ted Humphrey. The drama is based on the books of Michael Connelly.

The starring of The Lincoln Lawyer is Manuel Garcia-Rulfo, Neve Campbell, Becki Newton, Jazz Raycole, Angus Sampson, and Christopher Gorham. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo plays the lead role of Mickey Haller, a defence attorney in Los Angeles. The story Starts with Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia Rulfo) who is the most hot, handsome and intelligent defence attorney of Los Angeles. A fellow lawyer of Mickey mysteriously dies and his unfinihed cases inherit to Mickey. He needs to learn his cases first. Then he started investigating the cause of sudden death of his colleague, while trying to repair his relationships in his personal life.


The relationships of the main character with his assistants, driver, ex-wives, daughter and the police detective are all pretty compelling. His courtroom style is also very engaging. The acting, the pacing of the The Lincoln Lawyer and the production are all good.

It’s not hard to judge why The Lincoln Lawyer is so popular on Netflix. All the storyline, and likeable characters make the show intriguing to watch. Rulfo is charming and personable as Haller. He makes the audience as well as the court laugh with his one liners.

I haven’t seen the lead actor actually play lead in anything that I can recall, although he has shown up in some extraordinary films over the past decade. He exceedingly captured the role and did it well. I believe we witness a long overdue opportunity for him. Surprisingly, he embodies the hero lawyer essence that is the utmost requirement for this role. The success of The Lincoln Lawyer hinges on this factor alone.

The multiple storylines creates interest in the show. Most episodes there is a smaller case that Haller must win. But there’s also a big case he has to solve along with other plots. So far The Lincoln Lawyer has two seasons. The shooting of the third season has started and will probably come by the end of this year.


My verdict for The Lincoln Lawyer is if you like legal dramas, give it a try. You will end up liking this.

My Rating: 4/5
