Breaking Bad’s Attorney Saul Goodman’s New Spin-off

Attorney David J. Shrager was quoted in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette regarding the new spin-off of the t.v. show Breaking Bad’s fictional Attorney Saul Goodman. Read what David has to say about the perception of lawyers in the media.

From the Post-Gazette:

Criminal defense attorney David Shrager, whose office is Downtown near the county courthouse, hasn’t seen the show but says the negative depictions of lawyers, particularly in the specialty that he and Saul share, is pervasive throughout popular culture. He pointed to the scene in the film “Jurassic Park,” where an unpleasant lawyer gets devoured by a Tyrannosaurus “and everyone in the audience cheers.”

Mr. Shrager said criminal defense lawyers are among the most maligned. “The public has a perception that we manipulate the law to get results that are unjust,” he said, which is pretty much Saul Goodman’s stock in trade. “Are there attorneys out there who do things incorrectly? Absolutely, the same as with any other profession.”

It’s up to the good lawyers, who he says are the majority, to fight the public perception that they’re all like Saul, Mr. Shrager said. “We have to conduct ourselves ethically, professionally, and maintain honesty with clients and with the court at all times. I may not like what my client did, but it’s up to me to defend his rights under the Constitution.”
