Lawyers’ group balks at First Years

Lawyers’ group balks at First Years

The American Lawyers Public Image Association has come out against NBCs upcoming new show, First Years. Deeming the lawyer dramedy as a disservice to the entire legal profession and, ultimately, to the general public as well, ALPIA national director Nader Anise claims, Lawyers just cant catch a break. It is perhaps the networks stated intent to portray lawyers as bottom feeders and appropriately screwed up that ALPIA finds most upsetting. Anise adds, At the very least, wed like to see a disclaimer aired before every show. So far the presence of a gay lawyer character (portrayed by Mackenzie Astin) has not provoked any specific complaints, but stay tuned.
