I think it's a bit too one-sided to only portray this trope as applying to defense attourneys. Fiction has plenty of examples of prosecutors who are equally amoral, if not outright corrupt.

Wouldn't this trope fall under the "No Real Life Examples Please for tropes about evil people" rule?

Thanks, I don't visit the forums much and didn't realise there was a thread for this. I'll take it there and see how it goes.

Anyone got a copy of Aristophanes's The Wasps? I suspect Cleon or Anticleon might count, but I don't remember.

How is this different from Ambulance Chaser?

I've always thought of an ideal attorney in a Common Law system as being True Neutral, not Lawful Neutral. A judge is supposed to be Lawful Neutral, since his job is to interpret the meaning of the law. An attorney's job where there is a conflict of law is to present an argument that the judge must interpret it his way, whether or not that argument holds water.

removed picture under Just A Face And A Caption since image picking thread concluded knowledge of a videogame series was required to understand it and it didn't really represent the trope.

Stored image and link.

Welcome to the Los Angeles branch of Wolfram & Hart. We're the oldest and most powerful law firm in the city. Founded in 1791 on ground deconsecrated by the blood of mass murderer Mathias Pavayne, Wolfram & Hart has put roots down in this glamorous city that grow deep, and branches that reach right into the heart of every major corporation, including Yoyodyne, Weyland Yutani, and Newscorp. That captain of industry? We own his soul. That fabulous movie queen? She owes us her first born.

From Angel episode "Harm's Way". (Yoyodyne is a reference to the series 'V', Weyland Yutani is a reference to 'Alien', and Newscorp owns FOX).

I thought Yoyodyne was a reference to Buckaroo Banzai.
