“Law and love are the same – romantic in concept but the actual practice can give you a yeast infection.” That lovely quote was said by lawyer Ally McBeal during the first season of Ally McBeal. Though, Ally was more romantic than some of her female lawyer counterparts (did Abbie Carmichael ever even go on a date on Law & Order?), she did have the ambition and ruthlessness that every good lawyer needs. Though sometimes these lawyers were overshadowed by their crazy co-workers, wacky plotlines or their own wardrobe, at the end of the day they won the case and justice was served within 52 minutes. Plus, they usually did it while wearing heels. Let’s take a look at some of our favorite TV lawyers from shows that have aired in the past ten years.
