The Story

Those who have read the novel just watched the live-action version of the characters they read in this literature piece. However, there are some massive alternatives made in this drama, in correspondence to the 2011 movie, to add resembles and relations with the characters of the plotline.

The story is very interesting. Mickey Haller aka The Lincon Lawyer basically gets his name since he drives automobiles from the Luxurious car company Lincoln. He is a very smart attorney, however, is not working for he is recovering from a mishap that occurred right after he won a case with not so satisfying verdict.

Now, he again gains his momentum as a lawyer when one of his friends Jerry Vincent gets killed in course of an investigation of a case. Mikey Haller, i.e, the Lincoln Lawyer fortunately lands up as an heir to everything that the murdered owns, starting from his cases to his office.

The Lincoln Lawyer is a nice enthralling storyline that sufficiently offers the audience a good time together. The series at some angles will give you slight glimpses of the movie, of course, that will amuse you from time to time too.

The Actors

The cast of the show was too good. They left no space to criticize their talent as artists. Special credit goes to Manuel Garcia-Rulfo since; he just perfected the role with his natural dexterity.

The Characters

Apart from the main lead, who else stole your heart? Well, for us, we loved Cisco, Lorna, Maggie, and Trevor as well. They are some intense humane characters that showed reliability, warmth, intensity, flaws, and dependability throughout the narrative.

And the lead, Mickey Haller is someone who is a charming talented lawyer, skillful at his profession, knows what he is doing, and a good person by heart who will definitely warm you up. He misses his 1st ex-wife and would love to get back together. He is very genuine to his clients, not a corrupt being, and is a great family guy. He cares for his ex-assistant/2nd ex-wife too and respects Cisco as well.

The additional member in his circle is Izzy his driver and an ex-client who also comes close to his man with a gold heart. They share their life experiences and we watch Mickey teaching Izzy about Jury selection.

Trevor Elliot on the other hand is the complete opposite of this man. A jealous cunning unfaithful man who killed his wife and her lover and is looking forward to making improvements in both his life and career. He is a rich guy who will not stop at anything. However, this greed and ambition finally ends his life in the series.

Each of the characters introduced in the show has their special importance thus no one is pointless, just like in the 2011 movie. They bear their significance which ultimately helps in the advancement of the narrative in a very minute and detailed pattern.

No one on the show is annoying or hateful, yes even the villains. These promising characters will entertain you by building their own sincere persona and their story which will also engage you and interest you.
