A Very Litigious Christmas 3 Lawyer-Filled Holiday Movies to Watch
‘THE CASE FOR CHRISTMAS’ In this 2011 drama, Santa is facing a lawsuit from a rich, bitter businessman who’s still angry he didn’t get the presents he wanted as a child. A young lawyer named Michael Sherman, who also happens to be a single dad, comes to his defense. While Michael works to save the holiday, he also finds the courage to look for love again. This heartwarming Hallmark flick is perfect for the whole family! ‘THE MISTLETOE PROMISE’ Based on a book by Richard Paul Evans, this rom-com spins the tale of two Scrooges who make a pact to be each other’s dates to holiday events in order to get what they both want. In the case of Elise, a travel agent, that means revenge on her ex-husband, and for Nick, a divorce lawyer, it means a chance at partner in his firm. It’s not long before the holidays work their magic and the pair start to fall in love with Christmas — and maybe each other. If you encounter a legal dilemma this holiday season, our team of experienced attorneys would be happy to help (as long as Santa isn’t involved). Call us today at 404-566-5880.
Going to court may not sound very Christmassy, but as it happens, more than a few feel-good holiday movies are out there starring lawyers and their cases. In some, the lawyers are the Scrooges, but in others, they save the day — which is what we always aim to do in our personal injury litigations here at Kevin Patrick Law. This holiday season, curl up with one of these flicks to get another perspective on our line of work.
‘MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET’ This Christmas classic has been remade a half-dozen times since it first hit the big screen in 1947, but the plot has stayed the same through the years. In the black- and-white film, Kris Kringle is roped into playing Santa Claus in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade and is such a hit that he’s hired to continue the role at the Macy’s flagship store. Soon, Kris claims he actually is Santa and ends up hiring a lawyer to defend his assertion (and his mental health) in court. The outcome just might change Christmas forever.
