The large and lovable environmentalist lawyer of the renowned Tv show ‘How I Met Your Mother’ Marshall Eriksen.

The Mr. Cool of Lawyer, Harvey is the well dressed, witty Lawyer of the renowned law firm Pearson Specter Litt. Harvey unlike Marshall Eriksen has built his life around one thing and one thing only – winning. He is cut-throat and will do anything it takes to get that win; whether he is bullying CEO’s of corrupt businesses, inspiring witnesses to tell the truth, charming the opposing counsel in bed and pushing back on pretty much everything that colleague Louis Litt has to say. Harvey is a man with a plan and there is no one better to have on your side. Harvey alongside his genius Junior Associate Mike Ross they take on the good, the bad and the ugly with a winning track record like no other.

Alicia manages to balance all the drama in her life without breaking so much as a sweat – she is the ultimate women goals.

Tv’s most outrageous Lawyer Saul Goodman from Breaking Bad is our favorite Lawyer of the silver screening. Bending and most of the time breaking the rules of the law to protect his criminal clientele. He conducts his business with a wit, charm and humor of someone who is desperate to make a quick buck – often putting himself and his client’s in dangerous situations. He thinks like a criminal well because he is one, this ironic, contradictory paradox of man is highly entertaining – he is both sleazy and cheesy and you can’t help but fall in love with him and all his misadventures. Although he might not be there to save the day he is always there for a good laugh unless you’re his client and in that case, odds are you’re screwed.
