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.
