This 2011 movie, based on a true story, is about one man with the courage to stand up for a just cause. Mike Weiss (Chris Evans) is a talented young Houston lawyer and a functioning drug addict. Paul Danziger (Mark Kassen), his longtime friend and partner, is straight-laced and responsible. Their law firm is getting by, but things get really interesting when they decide to take on a case involving Vicky Rogers (Vinessa Shaw), a local ER nurse and single mother of two, who is pricked by a contaminated needle on the job.

Except for the piano music (Brandenburg Concerto in G Minor and Capriccio in B Major, both  by J. S. Bach) before, during and after the court scenes, I did not quite enjoy the movie, what with multiple scenes with monitor lizards (as pets) and the debauchery behaviour of the drug addicts.
