TV Series Review
Will Rogers thought lawyers' lack of conscience is what makes them lawyers. And while that might not be true of all attorneys, Rogers certainly seems to have fictional Las Vegas lawyers Nick Morelli and Pete Kaczmarek pegged.
Nick and Pete's methods are about as eclectic as their clients, and their firm, Morelli & Kaczmarek, will represent anyone, big or small—and sometimes not even human. Lisa, a former exotic dancer, and Zoe, a young and naive assistant, round out the practice that, while successful, has been known to inspire some serious eye rolling among the judges who try their cases.
The whole representing anyone shtick speaks to the size of Pete's and Nick's hearts. They might care about the wrong things at times. And they might make some pretty bad choices while they're caring about those wrong things. But they do end up caring more about the people they work for (and with) than the money they might make if they fully lived down to Rogers' opinion.
Something else, however, speaks to the color of their hearts: If Pete isn't trolling for his latest romantic conquest, then he's … unconscious. And if Nick isn't trying to patch things up with his estranged wife, he's subtly flirting with a client. And don't think Pete's above that, either. He'll even sleep with clients. After all, these high-rolling attorneys live in Sin City, and they'll bet their necks they'll win your case. Why? Because they play people—clients, judges, other attorneys, the Feds—like cards.
