The Law Firm is an American Reality competition that aired on NBC from July 28, 2005,[1] until August 4, 2005. It features up-and-coming lawyers competing against each other while trying real court cases with real clients, in front of real judges and juries, resulting in outcomes that are final, legal and binding for the parties.[1] The grand prize is $250,000.[1] Trial attorney and legal analyst Roy Black is the managing partner of The Law Firm.[1] As managing partner, Black decides who will be eliminated each week.[1]

5.08 million viewers tuned into the premiere and later dipped to 4.04 million for its second episode thus leading NBC to pull the series off the air.[2] The remaining episodes aired on Bravo.[2]
