Do you want to know how our legal system works? You’ve come to the right place. LegalEagle is all about giving you an insider’s view to the legal system. Have some fun and learn to think like a lawyer.

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. So I created this channel to answer your burning questions about the law and the legal profession. 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. Learn everything you always wanted to know about being an attorney!

    Take a shot every time someone says "clip"

  3. You are correct But

    It’s a poor reflection of US policing is the caution about calling the police because it might end in violence from the police.

    What does it mean to be sanctioned?

  5. Sweet Sarah

    Blm rioters committed multiple felonies and their bail was paid,or their charges were dropped. Such hypocrisy 🙄

    Objection: still nothing beats that Sicilian guy that acting pro se sued a lot of public officials (including U.S. President Obama) before a Court of petty jurisdiction asking Italy to divide Sicily in two independent States, one ruled by himself by the way, and clearly lost. He appealed, but you cannot act pro se in appeal, so he lost again for lack of legal representation. But he kept on fighting and kept of suing, and it went all up to the Italian Supreme Court, arguing that the ban of pro se representations in appeal was illegal. He managed to find a lawyer for his case, but it happens that she wasn't admitted at the Supreme Court bar, so he lost again for lack of representation. @LegalEagle, private message if you want more details and copy/English translation of the Supreme Court ruling, but I think this deserves an honorable mention.

    I played outside without my parents nearby all the time as a kid. Does that mean my parents technically we're neglecting me? I wouldn't really think of it that way, since they still raised and taught me how to function properly on my own.

    Interestingly enough, I’m watching through your back catalog right now, you’re very honest review of How to Get Away with Murder made me want to watch the show. In later seasons the thing that actually angered me above anything else was how the prosecutors were holding a grudge against the main characters lawyer and putting that grudge above justice and the truth. Out of everything in the show, that is probably the one thing that bothered me the most. Every single one of those attorneys should be completely fired if that is the attitude. I had heard good things about the good wife, but it was some of the other drama that I really didn’t care about and thus didn’t feel like watching. I also never finished how to get away with murder, as it just got boring. Same thing different day. Somebody’s out to prove that our main character has murdered somebody, when in fact she hasn’t. Love watching everything you do, and I enjoyed learning more about the law.

    I don't know about Trump being a "failed gameshow host", didn't his gameshow run for a bunch of seasons? A failed president, maybe (only one term), but give credit where credit is due.

    they took the house and "altered" it . . . what they took was a property suitable for occupancy . . . what they gave back was a condemned property . . . if that's not "alteration of purpose," what is?

  13. Noone of Consequence

    they cut out her breaking his hand for no reason... but they left in him being an asshole and stealing his motorcycle.

  14. Hard Core Hope Foundation

    It is funny that his record is still better than yours and he is practicing law while you are just making videos. Pot meet kettle. Your last filings never got an update video because you didn't even file half of what you claimed you were filing after a few of them were dismissed immediately. I have seen several lawyers, on the left, right and non political side call out Legal Eagle and even read and dissect his filings and dismissals. Your arrogance is astounding. And it's great that most of your fans and defenders know nothing of your actual background as an attorney.

  15. Arthur Curry

    I got in trouble in school for fighting in my neighborhood, a mile away from my school

  16. Noone of Consequence

    yes, she's the villain.

  18. shamusfarmer

    So the financially devastated dry cleaners' lawyer didn't offer to do the case pro-bono after seeing how his fees would ruin them after they've already had a judge try to ruin them? Is that how lawyers usually act?

    The guy who sued from prison is my hero.

  24. Severin .Wolf

    I object! Wayne Knight is not a "bad actor", being that he has won several awards for best actor.

  25. Asian Boudoir

    If lawyers want to be respected and treated as a legitimate profession like plumbers, then they need to disbar most of the current lawyers

  26. stonefacewiththedrip

    This guy looks like if bentist was a lawyer and way calmer

  27. George Prowse

    The US needs the English Rule

  28. Ray Rowley

    I think some of the improper actions by Riker and Picard are due to the fact that they are not legal experts but military officers filling in. So my questions are 1 does that ever happen in real life where untrained people have to act as lawyers in extreme circumstances, and 2 what would the expectation be in such a case? Would they just rely on the judge to tell them what they can and can't do or would they be given more leeway since they don't know what they are doing?

  29. Clayton Fournival

    You should do a deep dive into bailiffs. I’d love to know there procedure and limits of the position.

  30. Robert Ratcliff

    Great video had to give you a shout out

  31. BeardyAirways

    Objection! The “consensual handshake” is an intervening act where Capt. Marvel’s justification came to an end. There was no necessity - on her part - (morally or legally) to inflict injury on the biker, let alone rob him of his motorcycle - which would be a criminal and reprehensible pattern of conduct. If Capt. Marvel would have simply had the handshake and shot a snide one-liner at the biker, that would have been class-act behaviour. Instead, we have a “hero” (and a military (USAF) officer) behaving like a teenage delinquent - that, as far as I’m concerned is “conduct unbecoming” and would result in a dishonourable discharge from the military.

  32. Adam Lowe

    Could you do a video on John walker in falcon and the winter soldier, as there seems to be a lot of people saying he did nothing wrong, but didn't he commit a war crime

  35. Donato di Niccolò di Betto Bardi

    Lawyers, look bad? Nooo!

  36. Bear Newman

    Yeah but what do you do? Sue the cop? Will insurance pay out? How do i reclaim damages? Do i just have to accept it, and do nothing?

  37. Sean

    I like the videos where you talk about the actual law and provide a good analysis of issues, not the ones where you just repeat every talking point you heard on CNN and MSNBC. You're better than this.

  38. Mista Guido

    Wait and me?

  39. B.C splat briancross

    I think he is one of most who knows Biden was placed in office regardless of him winning office and is pissed maggots

  40. Niki G

    Remember that American diplomat's son who, a few years ago, committed a hit-and-run and escaped the country with the help of his diplomat mommy. And when they were caught she hired him a lawyer who claimed that his client was not responsible for his actions due to "affluenza"? Yeah, that. Hello déjà vu, nice to see you again, I remember you... Moral of the story, you ARE responsible for your actions, unless you try to argue in court that you are not. 🤷🏽‍♀️

  41. Katniss Artemis

    Police robots make me think of that one doctor who episode where the Daleks become police for the Queen. Interesting

  44. Vayne Solidor

    "Taken advantage." ;p Maybe if the Clanlands aka USA aka Moronland had a real law like a real country then it would not be a problem ;p instead you have a coutry that has a law system on a level below the Republic of Congo. It's insane how America and Russia are basically the same all-troll-country when you look closely enough. They just pretend to be 2 different things. Ok after watching the whole video i take it back, compared to America, EVERY other country is filled with genius people only. That is the contrast. Are we sure it's American PEOPLE? Not Animals? No, right, animals are not THIS silly...

  55. Gail Gayw

    how about instead of more tools of force, we address the issues that cause crime, like poverty and addiction. acab

  56. DVOYD

    OBJECTION: it is entirely possible to see a sanctioned lawyer in court, just not as a lawyer. gotta sue them first. :)

  57. Queen Sloan

    Actors ... not even good actors. .. just like her son.

  58. Lost Chronicles

    If I recall correctly the first act of terminator 2 is shot so it seems like T101 (arnold) is back to hunt down John and an unknown man is sent back to protect him. The man swiftly knocks out an officer and takes on a police uniform which is ment to portray the idea of protection (that hasn't aged well) and Arnold mugs a bikie in a bar which is ment to cement the idea is still the bad guy. It is not until both find John the script is flipped and it turns out the police man is actually a T1000 and arnold is there to protect him. This knowledge recontextualises future viewing, but for that first viewing arnold is portrayed as a villain.

  65. B.C splat briancross

    Iits should be no divorce allowed.

  66. billy apicella

    From what I heard about the divorce, it is related to the Epstein case. I am pretty sure that this is just a conspiracy, and I’m not going to be be seeing how I feel about this on conjecture, the I feel like that theory may be plausible.

  67. Nerobyrne

    wait ... so if the sign sais "satisfaction guaranteed", and I have a crush on the cashier .... 👀

  68. Phobophile

    That seems like it's not only asking for a civil action from the patient, but potential disciplinary action from the medical licensing board as well as contempt of court, does it not?

  69. InfernoGaming

    I love how this dudes channel is clearly biased against conservatism

  70. Nerobyrne

    well, if your lawsuit is meant to attack a competing business or a person you hate, and then that person is financially ruined, was it frivolous? Maybe in a strict legal sense, but in a practical sense you got exactly what you wanted!

  75. ThisIsTheEndPt2

    If she keeps "gates" in her surname then you damn well know this divorce is a cover for money laundering.

  76. Michiel Glas

    As a Dutch lawyer, it makes me very happy to see our courts being mentioned. Another fine example of a frivolous case in our courts was the custody case of fluffy the bunny where the judge did not mince words addressing the fivolity of the case and the fact that both parties were on legal aid.

  77. Florian Dutey

    "the real libertarians" Yes, some of us understand science and don't get triggered by things that "science demonstrated having no effect" (if we assume this sentence was right, which is not). If it has no effect and you're libertarian, just mind your own business then ;) So, thank you!
