Real lawyers compete against one another while trying real court cases with real clients -- in front of real judges and juries, resulting in outcomes that are final, legal and binding for the parties. Premier trial attorney and legal analyst Roy Black is the managing partner of "The Law Firm" and decides which of the twelve "legal eagles" is eliminated in each episode. Smart, strong-willed and fiercely competitive, the attorneys work together in different teams each week, battling tight deadlines, intense pressure and even one another as they strategize, prepare and try compelling cases ranging from First Amendment issues to neighbor disputes to wrongful death. Distinguished judges decide some of the cases, while a jury determines the others. In the end, the top attorney wins a prize of $250,000.
