Power of Attorney is an American-syndicated nontraditional court show that differed from other judge shows in that each side was represented by famous attorneys who cross-examined witnesses.


The pool of attorneys who made appearances on the program included:

The show's judge was Andrew Napolitano during the first season, 2000–2001, and in the second season, Lynn Toler (currently of Divorce Court) was the presiding judge.

Broadcast history[edit]

The show was cancelled mid-way through the second season due to low ratings, the effects of preemptions at the start of the second season due to the September 11 attacks breaking the momentum of Toler's debut, and high cost of the 10 or so rotating high-profile attorneys.
