Starring Matthew McConaughey in the lead role, ‘The Lincoln Lawyer’ is a legal crime drama based on the book of the same name by Michael Connelly. It follows the story of an attorney named Mick Haller, who is used to winning cases by hook or by crook. He has a bad reputation for accepting criminals as his clients and keeping them on the streets. In the process, he makes a lot of money. That’s his only focus, no matter whether or not his clients are actually guilty or not.
All of this changes when a rich man blamed for a horrific crime employs his services. A prostitute is brutally beaten and almost killed, but the man claims that all of this is just a ploy to extort money from him. Haller jumps into the case for the money and digs in with the belief that his client is innocent. However, as new information surfaces, he realizes that there might be more to this than he had initially imagined.
The film uses several locations to capture the movements of Haller and the urgency of his new case. If you want to know where it has been shot, here’s the answer.
