Why do bad things happen to good lawyers? Before he was Saul Goodman he was Jimmy McGill -- but he was always a great lawyer. Today we’re going to review Better Call Saul. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!
I loved Breaking Bad. And Saul Goodman was one of my favorite characters. Despite being down on his luck and faking his own name, he somehow always managed to give good legal advice to certain meth dealers in Albuquerque. Not surprisingly I REALLY enjoyed this show. Are there other episodes that are particularly good? Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments!

★ SUIT UP! Even if you're not a lawyer, you can still DRESS LIKE A LAWYER. All of my suits are from BlackLapel (I've used them exclusively for over five years). Their custom suits are amazing, yet still ridiculously affordable. HIGHLY recommended: https://go.magik.ly/ml/f78n/
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 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!

I object -- do you have any relevant authority or expertise to hand down a diagnosis of psychopathy on Mr. Walter White? Otherwise, am I to assume that you are attempting to admit irrelevant character evidence to the court?
loved the review. I don't know much about court rooms but I know about common sense. He called out the obvious flaw in the entrance to the courtroom...and seemed to have viable understanding of humanity. A+
I do find it interesting that LegalEagle notices all the propagandist techniques to humanize the crime but still refers to the of-age defendants as "boys". Not sure if he noticed that, or if it's a deliberate nod.
You did not mention any negative things about the first episode of Better Call Saul in this video! It does much better than many other shows do in terms of legal realism. Therefore, Better Call Saul should get an A+!
Objection: 05:42 If a business closed and they proceed to break into said business that is Criminal Trespassing plus breaking and entering. Which in the grand scheme is a far lesser charge to Desecration of a corpse, Necrophilia, Defacing a corpse cause they had sex with the head. I don't know if that's the legal precedent but it kind of fits being that they had face raped a corpse.
Objection: I request a whole series on Saul Goodman (T's All Good Man) and Jimmy Miller
Especially when in the same episode Beavis and Butt Head jump in front of the wrong car that turns out to be "Tuco's" Grandmother and are put on trial in the Desert
Objection: Saul wasn't the Drug Dealer.
2nd Saul wasn't a Psychopath on "Breaking Bad" He was the Personification of Satan himself. The only thing missing was the Pointy Tail Horns and Trident.
Best Example "Are you sure you want to go with the fake Heisenberg plan. One Phone call and ole Badger gets Shanked in the Chow Line"
Objection. If in fact an element of the crime is missing ( 5:42 ), then there is no crime. The proper thing is not to appeal in this regard to the jury's understanding of the definition of crime but to move the court to dismiss on the grounds that the required elements are not present to define the defendants' action as criminal.
The court has no subject matter jurisdiction and therefor the only process it can issue is a dismissal. To issue process without jurisdiction exposes the judge to an affidavit of actus reus or even a Title 42 action.
Objection! Walter white is NOT a "psychopath". People often make the mistake of "bad guy=psychopath" when this is not the case. A "psychopath" is one who feels pleasure in others pain/misery, Walter white never showing this trait whatsoever, psychopath isn't an insult, it's a mental disorder.
objection. When he killed Gus, When he had all of Mike's guys knocked of in a carefully orchestrated hit.When he had that Iconic speech with Skylar. "I'm the one who knocks" When he told Jessie how he watched Jamie die. How he manipulated Jesse through out that entire ordeal,is Sociopathic behavior. Poisoning Brock,to get Jesse on board with killing Gus. Getting him to kill Gale,when he wanted all of those times to stop cooking. How Walter would play him and fuck with his head,all so that he could get what he wants. Making his wife basically a captive in their relation ship.wrecked his SUV when Hank was getting too close to the laundry causing additional injury to his already busted up brother-in-law.
Walter's whole attitude was screw everyone,so long as he achieved his objective. Lying,deception,That video he made about Hank saying that Hank made him cook Meth for him. (Super low). If it wasn't someone he killed he threatened their lives. "Gretchen and I for get her big eared husband's name" Saying he put a contract out on them when he didn't really. Psychopathic no. Sociopath 100%
Real questions here. I’m assuming your background is a blue screen. Why choose the volumes of random books behind you to begin with? Does it make you seem more credible? More importantly, why choose one where the shelves are so weak that they are buckling under the weight of the books? I submit you have a background of a strip club. If your arguments are sound.. your backgrounds shouldn’t matter. Substance over style.
Objection. The criminal trespassing argument can considered argumentative. What was did exact business did his clients have being there? IE: If his clients were there specifically for criminal activity. Then Criminal Trespassing is indeed a valid charge.
Legal eagle....brass tacks review documentary "Divorce Corp" is it all true? I'm in New York and custody battle that'll never end. Granted my twins just turned 9. Anyways review the documentary please?? Thank you
Enjoy your channel, had a question about your comments on the check cashing scene. Since cashing the check would affirm the parties participation why in the case of Sue the TREX of South Dakota and Maurice Williams cashing of the $5000 check intact the same situation? I know it’s not the story you are doing but I thought it was similar
Objection, no defendant would want to stand trial with two other co-defendants! This is insane. Usually one is offered a deal to throw the other two under the bus in exchange for plea bargain, but a real trial would never go so far, let alone in front of a jury. Even if the defense really wanted to, a DA would want to have the verdicts handed out separately.
What are your thoughts on public defenders in general? I've been arrested three times in the WNY/Buffalo/Niagara Falls area and I have had three decent public defenders. Most people just call them "Public pretenders" because they just want to go home.
See react channels. This is how you do a real reaction. You don't rip out others people content vibatim and record ur self laughing evey 2 seconds. You actually add something substantive to make it worth being your own content
