You might be surprised, but I actually love lawyer jokes. Sadly, I think the public estimation of lawyers has actually gone up, which means the prevalence of lawyer joke has gone down. Feels like people really hated lawyers in the 80’s and 90’s but now people just kind of accept them [very Mr. Burns voice: Excellent…]
Anyway, I know you make fun of us because you love us! Here’s my reaction to a collection of lawyer jokes from around the internet and whether they hold a kernel of truth.
BTW, I’ll be at VidCon and EduCon July 8-13! Come say hi…I’ll be the old man wearing a tie.

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It’s one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous.
Today I’m taking a break from representing clients and teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.
This is part of a continuing series of “Lawyer Reaction” videos. Got a legal movie or TV show you’d like me to critique? Let me know in the comments!
