Hollywood has a tendency to play for the dramatic, particularly in a good, old-fashioned movie court case. We all love watching a bit of drama unfold, as long as we’re not at the centre of it ourselves. Movies have a way of instilling a genuine sense of the theatrical into what would ordinarily be a stuffy, paperwork-laden atmosphere. With years of experience in a variety of legal fields, Glenn Duker, solicitor and lawyer, is perfectly suited to handling your – hopefully less dramatic – courtroom showdown.
Whether you look at legal classics like 12 Angry Men, Inherit the Wind, or The Miracle on 34th Street – Hollywood has promoted the role of the lawyer in equal parts hero and villain. Who can forget Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird? The classic character that no doubt launched a great many legal careers and ambitions, and is – to this day – still the pop cultural reference of everything honest and good about the legal system and the lawyers and solicitors that operate within it.
Closer to home, we’ve had classics such as Breaker Morant, which brought to light a legal situation that was poorly handled – sadly, to the detriment of those involved. That’s what the legal system is all about – fighting against things that are wrong.
Of course we have modern classics like Tom Hanks unforgettable turn in Philadelphia, or the performance of Julia Roberts in the Academy Award-winning Erin Brockovich. For many people, A Few Good Men will be the standout courtroom stoush that comes to mind, and who could blame them? What’s that famous line again? Hmm, never mind.
When it comes to the reality of everyday life and the unpredictable legal issues that can be thrown your way – you know you can rely on the services of Glenn Duker lawyer and solicitor to protect you and your assets.
