3. For the People

  • Seasons: 2

The series only ran for two seasons before getting cancelled, but it’s still worth the watch. The show offers a rare glimpse inside The United States District Court for the Southern District of New York (aka the Mother Court), where brand-new lawyers attempt to make a name for themselves.

4. Suits

  • Cast: Gabriel Macht, Patrick J. Adams, Gina Torres, Meghan Markle
  • Seasons: 8

The first eight seasons of Meghan Markle’s legal drama, Suits, are now streaming on Netflix. The show follows a group of corporate lawyers who work tirelessly to represent the firm in a positive manner. One lawyer in particular, Mike Ross, is hiding a dark secret that could ruin his career. Similar to The Lincoln Lawyer, the show features a combination of new cases and personal story lines.

5. Burden of Truth

  • Cast: Kristin Kreuk, Star Slade, Peter Mooney, Meegwun Fairbrother
  • Seasons: 4

Joanna Hanley is forced to return to her hometown when a mysterious illness spreads among high school students. Although she’s there as a lawyer, the visit brings back old memories and hidden skeletons. The fast-paced storytelling is ideal for fans of The Lincoln Lawyer.

6. Bosch

  • Cast: Titus Welliver, Jamie Hector, Lance Reddick, Amy Aquino
  • Seasons: 7

This isn’t your typical, run-of-the-mill crime drama. Based on the book series by Michael Connelly, the series follows a skilled detective (played by Titus Welliver) who works with the L.A.P.D. When he isn’t on the clock, his top priorities include raising his daughter and solving his own mother’s murder.

7. Anatomy of a Scandal

  • Cast: Sienna Miller, Michelle Dockery, Rupert Friend
  • Seasons: 1

Based on the namesake novel by Sarah Vaughan, the story follows a powerful politician who comes under fire after sexual allegations surface. The story is told from the perspective of his wife, Sophie, who didn’t see it coming. Although it’s more personal than The Lincoln Lawyer, it’s interesting to see the differences between the U.S. and the U.K. justice system.
