Our 5 Favorite Lawyer Videos on YouTube

With the launch of YouTube in 2005, lawyers were not far behind in posting cheesy law firm videos. And they continue to post them at an alarming rate, churning out the good, the bad, and the embarrassingly ugly. We recently gave our intern a laptop and a dial-up modem and asked her to search through years of YouTube videos to find the best. The result? Our top five lawyer YouTube videos. While far from perfect, they are definitely full of VHS awesomeness. Enjoy.

“Machete:” Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman

YouTube has launched (or buried) the basement studio careers of wannabe comedians spoofing personal injury attorneys. There’s literally hundreds of fake shyster attorney videos. Thing is, the best one is a real commercial for a real firm, New York based Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman. And not only one, but a whole series of videos dealing with devastating personal injuries. We picked “Machete,” one of our favorites.

    I say no more of this for women! We must be thougt of for our minds!

      WTF? Objectified? The only thing objectified here are lawyers. Oh, and squirrels. Or are you talking about the ladies in the 007 video?

        Alan you’re wasting your time. This site is all trolls Ellen and GD being the worst of the bunch. This site has always had a few trolls. Now, it has taken over and become old-hat.

    Good videos but they’re all a pale imitation of the original crazy man, Jim “the HAMMER” Shapiro.
