Compare EvilLawyerJoke, YouWannaGetSued. No direct relation to the possibility that TheArmy will press charges on someone and use the best lawyers they have, even though that possibility could involve an Army of Lawyers and is very scary once you give it a few seconds' thought.


* ''Series/BetterCallSaul'': Jimmy and Kim's old associate Huell, who had been part of their plan to discredit Chuck at the bar hearing, has been arrested for assaulting a plainclothes cop. ADA Ericsen wants to give Huell a 3 year sentence, which Jimmy and Kim both know is unfair for Huell given he's just a pickpocketer. Kim ultimately decides on a multi-step scam to get ADA Ericsen to agree to a better deal. The first step involves Kim showing up with two Schweikart & Cokely associates who produce motions for discovery of evidence. Of course, Ericsen doesn't fall for it, saying to Kim once the associates are dismissed that these "shock and awe" tactics aren't going to sway her. But this is exactly how Kim expects her to react. This means that they are at an impasse when Judge Munsinger's office is then swamped by several boxes full of letters of support for Huell that have been forged by Jimmy and mailed from Huell's hometown of Coushatta. Judge Munsinger tells Ericsen and Kim to work out a deal and fast, under the threat of a bunch of (nonexistent) "yahoos" making a media circus. After a few phone calls to "members" of Huell's congregation (actually Jimmy and his camera crew using burner phones), Ericsen caves to Kim's proposal of probation with no jail time.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Daredevil|2015}}'': One flashback in "Nelson v. Murdock" depicts when Matt and Foggy were interning at Landman & Zack. We see them sitting on the legal team, who take up the length of a boardroom table, bringing damages against a Roxxon whistleblower who violated his confidentiality agreement to report substandard working conditions to his doctor that caused him to contract cancer. Matt can tell from his heightened senses that the man is telling the truth, and decides that he doesn't want to be protecting a corporation from someone who really needs help, and convinces Foggy to go with him and start Nelson & Murdock.
