The Best Legal Movies of ALL time! - PART 1
What are the best legal movies of ALL time?
I Strenuously Object Podcast takes a break from our recent string of heavy topics to have a little fun with a game show!
Noah and Bill each present to the court a movie with a legal theme.
They then give their opening arguments, hoping to convince “we the jurors” that theirs is the best legal movie of all time.
Opening arguments are followed by a rebuttal, a spirited debate and tons of movie clips in this tournament bracket-style competition.
Classic movies are up against more contemporary films, comedies battle dramas, and along the way the guys break down why their movie deserves to be called the best of all time.
Ten movies will be presented but only ONE can be the best of ALL time.
Play along with us, and maybe learn a thing or two about courtroom procedure, cross examination techniques, and what to never say to a judge.
The Alex Jones Billion $$$$ Verdict: Did The Jury Get It Right?
In this episode of I Strenuously Object the guys tackle the difficult topic of the recent Sandy Hook defamation case in which Info Wars’ infamous red-faced loudmouth Alex Jones was ordered to pay nearly a billion dollars.
This discussion leads our intrepid attorneys down a legal, moral and philosophical rabbit hole as they wrestle with subjects such as, the limits of freedom of speech, the difference between liability and damages, the difference between compensatory and punitive damages and the monetary value we can place on suffering.
Bill and Noah are joined by our “jurist in residence” the Ex-Godfather, “Everyday” Ron Meyers, who adds his passionate, non-lawyerly opinions to the proceedings, all in an effort to answer: “Did the Alex Jones Jury Get it Right?”.

Choosing The Right Personal Injury Lawyer
Choosing the right personal injury lawyer is the most important decision anyone injured can make.
The right injury lawyer can literally mean millions of dollars of difference in your case.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured, it is imperative that you pick the right personal injury lawyer, and trust us, not all lawyers are the same.
On this episode of I Strenuously Object, with special guest, Injury Lawyer Shawn Flaherty, the ISO crew share and break down the most important questions to think about when choosing a personal injury lawyer.
These include, how do I find a lawyer?
Should I call who I see on TV?
Are all lawyers the same?
Do all injury lawyers offer free consultations?
Do all injury lawyers work off of contingency agreements?
Do relationships matter when hiring a personal injury lawyer?
And perhaps most importantly, how to tell if your new lawyer actually has the time to work on your case. Even the best lawyers are useless if they don’t have time to actually help you.
You only get one chance at a lawsuit. Don’t hire the wrong personal injury lawyer or it could cost you millions. The ISO podcast is here to help!
How to Prepare for a Deposition
A deposition can win or lose a lawsuit, and yet many parties and witnesses are not properly prepared for their deposition.
In this episode of I Strenuously Object, Noah and Bill invite founding partner Attorney Shawn Flaherty to help create the single greatest podcast ever recorded to help witnesses preparing for their deposition.
If you are facing a deposition you should be nervous, and if you are not prepared you will not do well testifying. This podcast should help you.
3 lawyers with over 75 years combined experience explain the fundamental do’s and don’ts in depositions including, go slow, only answer the question asked, if it can be answered in 3 words instead of 7, use less words; be careful about your appearance; let it be silent; how to handle objections, and why treating a deposition like you are being asked a question in a funeral home makes total sense.
You can seldom win a case in a deposition, but it is very easy to LOSE a case in a deposition.
If you need to know about preparing for a deposition in a personal injury or medical malpractice case, you better listen to this.
Useful and fun!
I love the way these guys make complex legal topics understandable and fun to learn about!
