This popular TV drama depicted life in a large Los Angeles law firm. The plots were strongly character-based and dealt with both the personal lives and professional activities of the partners, associates, and staff. Scenes centered around the courtroom and the law offices. Often, an episode would open with a surprising twist, which would then be played out during the rest of the show. Written by

David E Kelly was the head writer on this show. It was Kelly's feeling that this show was unrealistic; tended to glamorize the law and deify lawyers. Kelly created "The Practice" which was a grittier, less sexy and flattering portrait of the law as a direct response to this show. See more »

I'm more like my father than I thought. I wanted to be the lawyer he was, the man he was. Turns out we both just like to cheat on our wives.

Amongst the many shows that Steven Eckholdt has been a guest star on, his quasi-regular role of Patrick Flanagan on " L.A. Law" was extremely excellent!! Steven has been on numerous shows as a powerful guest star. "Law and Order" "Boston Legal" "West Wing" "Wings" and so many others!! I liked his role in "About Last Night"!! I thought he was great in the movie "Santa Who". The short lived series "It's Like You Know" was tremendously bolstered by Steven Eckholdt, and I thought he was really good in "Leaving Drew" as well!! The best part of Steven Eckholdt with his role as Patrick Flanagan on "L.A. Law" was that he was a character who was flawlessly feasible. A young, good looking, and successful attorney working in a high profile law firm in Los Angeles is going to be very arrogant, and, basically, he is going to feel like he is above the law!! Towards the end of the series "L.A.Law", Steven Eckholdt was a big reason why I watched the show!! I know a lot of people who just think that Steven Eckholdt is absolutely spectacular!!
