District Attorney Tom Logan is set for higher office, at least until he becomes involved with defence lawyer Laura Kelly and her unpredictable client Chelsea Deardon. It seems the least of Chelsea's crimes is the theft of a very valuable painting, but as the women persuade Logan to investigate further and to cut some official corners, a much more sinister scenario starts to emerge.

In the end credits, one can see that one of the works of art used in the film is from the collection of Mr. Cary Grant. As Grant would pass away the same year of the film's release, 1986, this would be one of his last screen credits. See more »
When the press is interviewing Chelsea after the charges against her are dismissed, there's no breeze, and her hair is around her face. The next shot has a rather strong wind whipping her hair around, then in the next immediate shot, her hair is still again-as if there had been no breeze at all. See more »
For fans of romantic comedies or legal dramas, you should probably look
elsewhere and avoid watching Legal Eagles. Robert Redford and Debra
Winger are partners in a law firm who have very different styles in the
courtroom. Bob is charming and pandering, and Debra is strict and plays
by the rules. When they join forces to defend Daryl Hannah, who's
accused of murder, there's no telling what might happen!
Yes, it really is as bad as it sounds. It's not serious enough to stand
up against real courtroom dramas, and it's too silly and predictable to
stand up against classic romantic comedies. If you liked Laws of
Attraction, you might like this one, but I couldn't stand either of
them. Yes, Robert Redford is very handsome, but I'm not a fan of either
of the actresses, so I wasn't rooting for either side of the love
triangle. You've got dozens of other movies to choose from to see his
gorgeousness. Do so.
