I have been a trial lawyer, for over 30 years, but trying only civil cases, as opposed to criminal cases. Normally, I don't like lawyer shows (John Grisham movies and LA LAW excepted) because they are so inaccurate. Not so The Practice. Once I thought they got an evidence issue in a criminal case wrong, but I researched it, and they had it right. If you ever sit on a jury you will only wish (as you try to stay awake) that the trial lawyers were as good as they are in this drama.
