Harvey and Mike. Mike and Harvey. Have you ever wanted to know if they’re good lawyers? Today we’re going to find out. Stay until the end for my Legal Accuracy Grade.

SUITS has been highly requested; probably the most requested show on this channel. I think I missed Suits the first time around because I had already graduated from law school when it came out. But I’m glad I got a chance to watch this. This week i’m deconstructing the first episode of Suits.

★ A Few of My Favorite Things★
(clicking the links really helps out the channel)

Custom Suits:
Tie Clips/Bars:
Pocket Squares:

▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) [ ]: Off-the-rack suits NEVER fit right. Indochino makes fully custom suits that fit perfectly using any material I want, with all of the options I want. And they cost 1/3rd of what normal suits costs. I’ve purchased them with my own money for years, so I’m thrilled they are now a sponsor.

▶ Why Ties from TheTieBar? (Free shipping on orders over $50) [ ]: Normal ties are too fat. Skinny ties are too skinny. So these days I only wear ties that are exactly 2.5” wide. They are fashionable without being hipster. You see them in all of my videos. TieBar ties are perfect, come in every color I want, and never cost more than $19.

▶ Why these Tie Clips? [ ]: It’s really hard to find affordable tie clips that are the right size (1.5”), look good, and are great quality. These tie bars are all three. Plus the 3-pack gives a variety of styles. They pair perfectly with 2.5” ties from TheTieBar (above).

▶ Why these Pocket Squares? [ ]: I like my pocket squares perfectly, well, square. Like straight-out-of-Mad-Men square. The only way to do that is with a stiffer material that keeps its shape. I’ve exhaustively tried dozens of pocket squares, and these are by far the best. It’s how I get the perfectly flat pocket square you see in my videos.

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!

Props to Dr. Mike's Real Doctor Reacts ( ) and Wired's Technique Critique ( ) for the inspiration.

All clips used for fair use commentary, criticism, and educational purposes. See Hosseinzadeh v. Klein, 1:16 -cv-03081-KBF (SDNY 2017).

      He says he's never watched the show before, and it's obvious. The whole point if the show isn't that they're lawyers, it's that they're CROOKED. The entire plot twists and turns around their intentionally "bending" and breaking the law.

    5:38 So a question. Where I come from, all schools in the country need to follow the same specific level of education. Thus making it unimportant to what university you go to. If you graduate, you are schooled according to criteria and standards set by the state wich is the same that any other university in the country has to follow. A university is a university, one is not more expensive or better than the other. This elliminates the prestigious aspect seen in US universities that makes some people more desirable than others. Making it so that all university graduates are equal when graduated. So if you get passed up when applieing for a job, that is completely on you.
    But in the US it is apparently so that when you graduated from the university you can still get passed up by certain law firms, just because you did not graduate from a certain school. My question is, can this not be considered racist. I'm not a fan of people yelling racism, but here me out. We have racism based on color, religion, gender and so on. But can't this be considered racism based on education? Since you basically get passed up for not being the right race of lawyer since you graduated from a "lesser university" it would seem. And how is it that one university is lesser than some other university. Isn't there a standard or criteria set to graduate from a law school or what is it specifically that makes harvard better then other universities in the US. Because apparently law firms consider lawyers not good enough at practicing law based on the university they went to.

    Objection! The witness tampering issue can have logic. If the defendents create a fake trail to a witness they have bought for the plaintiffs to use, they can then orchestrate her story and how it can be proven to be false. It then allows the defendet to go on the attack against the plaintiff's team. This can be through saying the plaintiff's team are making bogus patterns of behaviour to try and smear the defendent. By getting the false testimony of the tampered witness into the records the plaintiff team are now tied to their strategy. However, the way defendent team break their false witness' story isn't that good.
