Let’s be honest, it’s hard to go past a legal movie. Memorable characters, gripping storylines, David vs Goliath battles and best of all some classic lawyer quotes that will stick with you for a long time.

Here’s a few that stick in our heads.

A Few Good Men (1992)

Col. Jessup (Jack Nicholson): [during court proceedings] “You want answers?”
Kaffee (Tom Cruise): “I want the truth!”
Col. Jessup: “You can’t handle the truth!”

To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)

Atticus Finch (Gregory Peck): [closing statement] “…Now, gentlemen, in this country, our courts are the great levelers. In our courts, all men are created equal. I’m not idealist to believe firmly in the integrity of our courts and of our jury system. That’s no ideal to me. That is a living, working reality! Now I am confident that you gentlemen will review, without passion, the evidence that you have heard, come to a decision and restore this man to his family…”

Philadelphia (1993)

Andrew Beckett (Tom Hanks): “It’s that every now and again – not often, but occasionally – you get to be a part of justice being done. That really is quite a thrill when that happens.”
