Complete storyline and information about The Lincoln Lawyer
The lawyer Mickey Haller (Manuel Garcia-Rulfo) is idealistic and incorrigible. He runs a luxurious law firm, but works out of his Lincoln Town Car, which he drives around Los Angeles. In doing so, he takes on various cases and is not above representing criminals himself. Because in his eyes, even guilty people deserve a fair trial before the law.
A year ago Mickey was involved in an incident and had to take some time off. Now he is returning to the world of justice. That’s because a lawyer friend of his, Jerry Vincent, was murdered, leaving him with plenty of open cases that Mickey is now taking on.
One of his new clients is respected tech mogul Trevor Elliott (Christopher Gorham), who is accused of murdering his wife and her lover. It’s the biggest case of his career. Soon, however, Mickey finds himself in grave danger, as Jerry’s killer may now have it in for him.
Background & Info on The Lincoln Lawyer
The Lincoln Lawyer is based on the Mickey Haller series of novels by Michael Connelly, which was previously filmed as the feature film The Client starring Matthew McConaughey. The series adapts the 2nd volume of the series, So Help Us God (in the original: The Brass Verdict).
Originally, The Lincoln Lawyer was to be created as a series on the US channel CBS, where a pilot episode was ordered in February 2020. In the CBS version, Logan Marshall-Green, Kiele Sanchez and Angus Sampson were to play the skin roles. In May 2020, it was announced that CBS will no longer implement the series.
After being quiet about the project for some time, Netflix finally announced in January 2021 that it had picked up the series and officially ordered a 10-episode first season. Manuel Garcia-Rulfo will replace Logan Marshall-Green as Mickey Haller. Much of the cast of the CBS pilot will be replaced. Ted Humphrey serves as showrunner for the series, while David E. Kelley produces and shares in the scripts.
Filming on the first season of The Lincoln Lawyer began in Los Angeles in March 2021 and continued through August 2021. The series premiered on Netflix on May 13, 2022. (MW)
