My father hated lawyers all his life.
He wasn't a great guy, my old man.
He drank and beat up my mother.
He beat me up, too.
So you might think I became a lawyer
just to piss him off,
but you'd be wrong.
I've wanted to be a lawyer
ever since I read about the civil rights lawyers
in the fifties and sixties
and the amazing uses they found for the law.
They did what a lot of people thought
was the impossible.
They gave lawyers a good name.
And so I went to law school,
and it did piss my father off,
but he was pissed off anyway.
In my first year, he got drunk one day
and fell of a ladder
manufactured by the company he worked for,
and he didn't know who to sue first.
Now, he died a couple months after that.
Now, some of my classmates,
they knew they were going straight from school
into the top law firms,
thanks mostly to their family connections.
Now, the only connections I had
were made in the places where I tended bar for 3 years
so I could pay my tuition.
And while I still had plans
to shine the blazing light of justice into every dark corner,
what I really needed right now was a job,
because there are too many lawyers in Memphis.
This city's infested with them.
I don't think so.
I can't think of anything more embarrassing
than telling people
I work for a guy like Bruiser Stone.
我是說 他是個律師 大家叫他伯魯瑟
I mean, he's a lawyer, and they call him Bruiser.
That's how desperate I am.
Shut the door.
不 不是那個 也不是那個
No, not that. Not that either.
Let's make it my house.
I really pity the poor FBI technician
that's gonna have to extract the data
from that conversation.
Live sharks in a lawyer's office.
It's a joke. Get it?
is this the law student you were telling me about?
Yes, sir. I just finished
my third year at Memphis state.
Couldn't you use him around here?
Look, I'll vouch for him.
The boy needs a job.
He's tended bar at our clubs.
This'll be a great place for you to work, Rudy.
A great place for you to work.
You can see what real lawyers do.
Now, it ain't exactly a salaried position.
I expect my associates to pay for themselves...
generate their own fees.
Talk to me.
How exactly does that work?
嗯 魯迪 你每月支取一千美金
Well, Rudy, you draw $1,000 a month,
and you get to keep 1/3 of all the fees that you generate.
Now, if you can't cover your draw
at the end of each month, you owe me the balance.
Do you understand?
Sounds fair to me, Rudy.
That's a hell of a deal, really.
You can make a lot of money this way.
I'll tell you something, Rudy.
That's the only way I operate.
And I'll get you a lot of good cases.
I have cases.
I have 2 cases right now.
One is a will
that I'm drafting for an old woman.
She's loaded, too. She's worth millions.
And then I have this other case.
It's an insurance case.
Great Benefit. You heard of 'em.
You got these clients signed?
I'm on my way to see 'em right now,
and they'll listen to me, too.
I helped 'em over at a law workshop.
All right, I'm gonna have you talk
to an associate of mine, Deck Schifflet.
He used to work with these big insurance companies.
He handles all the high-powered stuff around here.
You got the paperwork on this stuff?
In my car.
Hey, good lookin'
this is Deck Schifflet.
This man will get you plugged in.
What I want you to do,
I want you to draw up a lawsuit against this Great Benefit,
and you put my name on it.
We're gonna file it today.
Rudy, you're gonna learn a lot.
Rudy, I'm glad you came here.
You're making good choices already, son.
不錯 那麼 謝謝你
All right, well, thank you.
OK, thank you.
Close the door on your way out now, OK?
Law offices. May I help you?
This is an office, there's people in it.
If there's somebody in the office,
you can't have it, it's off limits.
This is the bathroom.
Just a minute.
So, are you an associate here?
Sort of. Not really.
I'm actually not a lawyer yet.
