Oh, okay. It's an interesting idea. Thanks for the clarification, Gord.

One thing that confused me was that I didn't realize the names like Milton Provine and Phil Bilko were the character names, using parts of actors names. They sound great, too. Good idea, David!

Heck, now it seems obvious! Silly me. Embarassed

Bud my idea, is that when they picked their legal representation, they subconsciously picked lawyers who characteristics mirrored their own. Not exactly original, but I think if fits the story line.

The names are just place holders, because I was too lazy to be original, and I thought that it was good shorthand.

It appears that I was mistaken. Laughing

David.

No, it appears I missed the point! Very Happy

I like your idea the more I think about it, but your idea went right over my head when I first read it! Shocked

As I said, I love the names you suggested, along with the concept behind them. Hey, let's run with it and see what happens! Very Happy

I now realize that the similarities in character would be subtle, causing each attorney to have a deep understanding of his client's nature! I didn't think of that in my previous posts — but looking back, I did suggest very distinct characters for each attorney . . . without suggesting which ones would be best suited for each client!

Dude! You're "Thinking Like a Writer"!

I don't know if my descriptions of the defense team would match up with any of the clients the way you described, so I'll leave it to you to review the descriptions I made and find out if I accidentally hit the mark, just out of dumb luck!

Please go back to my post about the various defense attorneys and see it any of them might work with your idea.

If not . . . well, I was just tossing out ideas!

But I'd love to find out that a few of my characters dove-tailed with your concept, and that the quirky clients ended up with quirky attorney's who bonded with the same folks they desperately wanted to keep out of prison! Very Happy
