The Lincoln Lawyer season 1 is based on Michael Connelly’s blockbuster novels. There are great hopes for the next series, with Hollywood legend David E. Kelley as both the creator and executive producer. Kelley’s work includes Chicago Hope, The Practice, Ally McBeal, and Boston Legal, to mention a few.
Ted Humphrey (The Good Wife) and executive producer Ross Fineman (The Good Wife) are also behind the scenes on the show (Big Sky). Despite the show’s star power and the film adaptation of Connelly’s novels starring Matthew McConaughey was a sleeper hit in 2011, it’s been a long road.

The concept of the Lincoln Lawyer
“Mickey Haller, an iconoclastic idealist, runs his law office out of the back seat of his Lincoln, as he takes on cases big and small across the broad United States,” according to Netflix.
The first season is based on the second book in the Lincoln Lawyer series, The Brass Verdict, by acclaimed author Michael Connelly, and is based on the second book in the Lincoln Lawyer series, The Lincoln Lawyer.” Mickey Haller, a criminal defence attorney, works mainly from the back of his black Lincoln Town Car, escorted by Earl Briggs, in Los Angeles County, California. Most of his career has been spent defending low-level offenders, such as Eddie Vogel’s biker gang.
The first season of Netflix’s The Lincoln Lawyer wraps up themes of corruption, and what justice looks like inside and outside the system. The system fails in season one. Elliott is said guilty but is not guilty. Menendez was first convicted despite his innocence. Soto was guilty, but the case was dismissed. Complicity in the miscarriage of justice is evident at every level of the court system. As a result, the judge denied by the court system was finally delivered outside of it. By killing Elliott, DuBois was able to bring justice to Rilz. By ensuring that the FBI tried Soto, McPherson provided justice for her witness. Haller enlisted the help of Cisco and Lorna to pursue justice through unusual means.
The Lincoln Lawyer is a show about justice with a lawyer, but it’s not about law and order, as the season one episode “The Brass Verdict” demonstrates. Trevor Elliott was assassinated because the legal system. He is not able to convict him of the double homicide, subject to a dubious verdict. According to Detective Griggs, a brass verdict occurs. It is when a jury gives a not guilty decision, but vigilante justice is later to a guilty defendant. Carol DuBois (Night of the Living Dead’s Heather Mazur) couldn’t have known Elliott was guilty. It is based on a gut feeling because Haller only gave the smoking gun proof to Elliott after the shooting.
However, from the start of the trial, DuBois was facing his guilt, and she had a strong emotional attachment to one of the victims. DuBois would be facing with deliberate homicide under the law if she shot Elliott with the intent to kill him without cause. Elliott’s execution, however, is justified in a “ends justify the means” perspective under the informal theory of the brass verdict because the justice system’s inability to convict him a second injustice, the brass verdict, which was by his death
