He will also frequently step in and help people who can't afford his exorbitant fees if he feels that they're being screwed by the system.

->''"I'm Dr.Jason Bull. I'm not a lawyer. I'm an expert in what's called trial science. I study the jury's behavioral patterns. I know what they're thinking before they do. Everything my team learns gets plugged into a matrix, which allows us to assemble a mirror jury that is scary in its predictive efficiency. The verdict you get depends on me. And that's no bull."''
