Fictional Attorney of the Month: Bob Loblaw

Bob Loblaw

Arrested Development features a cast of absurd characters doing absurd things.

One of those characters is Bob Loblaw, an attorney the Bluth family hires to help them with their myriad legal troubles. (He's hired to replace a deeply incompetent lawyer, Barry Zuckerkorn.)

His name, of course, is the first of the absurd things about him. But his attorney advertisement (video below) emphasizes points of absurdity, too, including the rhetorical question, "Why should you go to jail for a crime someone else noticed?" He chronically overbills his clients. Scott Baio's dry, essentially disinterested persona offers us this month's fictional attorney.
