THE LINCOLN LAWYER does not disappoint. It picks up where it left off giving viewers and fans a more in-depth look at the ensemble who surround Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo). The slick, conniving court room series is based on the books written by Michael Connelly. It is a treat to see characters come alive from page to screen exactly as you envisioned them to be.   

THE LINCOLN LAWER is still using his Lincoln Town car as his office, but in these first five episodes, Mickey is also back to driving himself around Los Angeles much more often. Who wouldn’t as he also owns a gorgeous, old-school convertible. I could just watch him drive forever along the ocean highways, but then we would miss out on all his fascinating cases and clients. What I love about Mickey are his flaws and his incredible imagination to get himself out of most any dire situations. He is a great dad and ex-husband to his first and second wives. He cares about winning a not-guilty verdict and that is the type of lawyer you want on your side.   

Of course, Mickey is back in the limelight with a huge murder case. It is one he couldn’t resist taking on even though his staff did not agree with his choices, and it is causing him headaches and physical pain he did not anticipate. It is fun to witness the sharp, quick dialogue inside the courtroom and on the streets. Hard to say who’s guilty or not and that’s the way I love to watch my crime dramas.  Keep me guessing, and I will come back for more every time. This is the case with THE LINCOLN LAWYER ending on a painful cliffhanger that won’t be resolved until August 3rd.  Stay strong Mickey. I won’t leave you.   

THE LINCOLN LAWYER was created by David E. Kelly. Need I say more? He loves creating “grand story telling without limitations.” He is succeeding sharing beloved characters amidst stunning L.A. cinematography. It’s a win/win partnership. If you loved reading these books, you will thoroughly enjoy and be entertained by this series.   

THE LINCOLN LAWYER is available to stream on NETFLIX.
