Boston Legal Blonde Lawyer

Dennis `Denny` Crane, named partner of Crane, Poole & Schmidt, is a renowned lawyer with fifty years of practice who says he has never lost a case and never will. He is an eccentric who considers himself a legend and likes to say his own name to «sign» his verbal statements. In one of the latest episodes of The Practice, he explained that people often don`t believe they`re in the room with a caption, so he says his own name to let them know it`s true. Denny suffers from memory loss and confusion in the early stages of Alzheimer`s disease, but often refers to his problems as «mad cow disease» when his statements are confusing to others or when he himself becomes confused. Although he still hears cases frequently in Season 1 of Boston Legal, he seems to have lost most of his talent for complex litigation in Season 2, although he still shows a flair for appealing to a jury in closing arguments. In Season 3, he usually serves as a figurehead in the company, rarely hears cases, and appears more often as a plaintiff and defendant in court because of his antics. However, when he appears in court as a lawyer in later seasons, he is still performing well. Sally Heep first appeared as a partner at Crane, Poole & Schmidt. Sally was featured in The Practice and began a relationship with Alan who transitioned to Boston Legal. However, after he used it to get information from a witness against his client so that they could suppress his testimony, she broke up with him. Shortly after Shirley took over the Boston office, she fired Sally for repeated mistakes in preparing cases that tested her competence as a lawyer. Sally returns in the third season as an opposing lawyer («Whose God Is It Anyway?» and «The Verdict»). Judge Brown is a regular guest in the Boston jurisdiction, and the judge who hears most of the show`s cases.

Sara Holt is a smart lawyer who doesn`t go beyond using her own beauty to help her client. Sara, a first-year colleague, is a good friend to her colleague Garrett Wells, and the two often conspire to win business in unethical ways – the most notable of which was the seduction and blackmail of a minister. Sara works mainly with Denise Bauer, although she has the idea of a relationship with Alan Shore and both dates on one occasion. She left the series in the second season, without any explanation. Shirley Schmidt is an appointed partner of Crane, Poole & Schmidt, a company she founded with partners Denny Crane and Edwin Poole. Tending to remind her younger colleagues that she is «Schmidt,» Shirley`s job is to curb Denny`s absurd behavior, conduct litigation, and practice law. Before starting her business, Shirley attended Wellesley College, where she met her share of smart Harvard students. She spent a lot of time in New York before being called to Boston by Paul Lewiston. Shirley had a romantic relationship with Denny, a past that she now looks at with a sardonic distance and often jokes about it. She is portrayed in the series as extremely desirable: intelligent, sexy and sought after by many men around her, including her ex-husband Ivan Tiggs and colleagues Denny, Alan, Jeffrey Coho and Carl Sack. In the series finale, she eventually marries Carl Sack. Alan Shore is a brilliant lawyer with a strong moral core that is not above achieving ethical results in unethical means.

Illegal hacking, extortion, disguise and corruption are all tools he uses without hesitation. However, Alan is unwavering in his defense of the underdog (unless he represents the other side). He is disappointed and disillusioned with how the country has changed in recent years and regularly raises these issues in public court. Wherever he works, he treats his employees with ease and refuses to take himself too seriously. Alan suffers from night terrors, is afraid of clowns and has abandoned his home and prefers to live in hotels instead. He accepted that he would never become a partner in the firm due to his unpredictable behaviour and unreliability; Although the managing partners of Crane, Poole & Schmidt do not fully trust Alan, they recognize his talent as a lawyer. Alan is Denny Crane`s best friend (and later husband), despite their strong differences in political ideologies. Alan Shore: Let me tell you two things about myself.

I, too, am a lawyer, I can be painfully vindictive, and I do not play fair. Denise`s love life was a frequent story in the series. During the mid-range episodes of Season 2, she had a confrontational adulterous relationship with businessman Daniel Post (played by Michael J. Fox), whom she loved, but who was terminally ill. When her character left the show, she began a «friends with benefits» relationship with fellow lawyer Brad Chase. Daniel Post came into his life at the end of season 2 and proposed to her. Around the middle of season 3, it is revealed that Daniel Post has died. On Halloween, Denise goes in search of Daniel`s body to pay tribute to him. Garrett Wells was introduced in the premiere of the second season as a cheeky young lawyer who is obviously attracted to Denise.

He goes over her head with some clients, but helps her by blackmailing her ex-husband`s lawyer/pastor to get her to abstain from her requests for money. He is not as effective in the courtroom and has been humiliated more than once by sober judges. He is also intimidated by Catherine Piper, Alan Shore`s caterer and former assistant, who actually drives him out of his own office. We will not see him again after the end of season 2. It is not clear if he is still with the company or if he was fired by the partners without any explanation. During the second season, he begins a relationship with a paralegal and initially shames the company for his misaligned sexual encounters. Paul Lewiston is managing partner in the Boston office and counsel to Crane, Poole & Schmidt. Paul is experienced in client relations and an expert in Far Eastern markets and the legal issues of companies operating in this part of the world.

Unlike Denny and Alan, Paul usually does things strictly «according to the book.» He had several antagonistic arguments with Denny and Alan over their apparent lack of respect for the law. Her middle-aged daughter, Rachel, is introduced as a methamphetamine addict in Season 2, and Paul has her kidnapped and taken to a rehab center.
