Shakefire writes, "In prison everyone says they’re innocent. The sad thing is many people actually are. Mickey Haller (Matthew McConaughey) works as a criminal defense attorney in Los Angeles, and it’s his job to keep people to out of the slammer, whether they’re guilty or not. So far he’s managed to do pretty well for himself, even though his methods may be a little unethical. When a high profile case comes his way, Haller is put in a difficult position that questions his entire career and jeopardizes his life."
