In the first of a three-part series on the rising number of lawyers getting into trouble, one of the biggest trends is the rise in lawyer videos on YouTube.
These videos, often featuring lawyers who have been called to court for things like domestic violence, theft and fraud, have become popular among young lawyers who want to get into the legal profession.
Many of these videos also show what happens when lawyers are called to the front line.
The lawyer who takes the video The first lawyer to get a lawyer video is a 22-year-old named Alex Giannapoulos, who says he was summoned to court by his partner after they were involved in a dispute with their son.
“She said that we should have a child,” he says in the video.
“I said, ‘That’s not possible because we’re legally married.
We are legally married, but if we do that, we’re going to get in trouble’.”
Alex, a student at the University of Chicago Law School, said he and his partner had been arguing for a week about the amount of money their son had borrowed from the bank.
“When we were arguing, my partner was calling me an idiot for not having the money to pay the bill,” he said.
“My partner was saying that if I don’t have the money for the bill, I’m going to call the police.”
Alex and his father, James Giannapsoulos, were eventually ordered to pay back the money.
Alex says the couple’s dispute escalated and he took the video to show the court what had happened.
He says he felt “embarrassed” and “angry” at the time, and the couple went to court to get their money back.
In the video, Alex says that after he and James had filed a civil lawsuit against their son for the amount owed on the bill and when they had failed to come to a settlement, the family went to the police.
They were told that if they wanted to see the video they had to get out of the house and come to the court.
Alex and his parents both lost their jobs and they went into debt.
Alex says the police arrested him and James in front of their home, saying that he and the family were breaking the law.
“We were arrested, arrested, and we were arrested for a reason,” he told ABC News.
“And so they had the right to arrest us for that reason.”
Alex says that his father was put in solitary confinement for two months.
When he and Alex went to appeal, the court decided that he was not guilty.
“The judge basically said that they didn’t have enough evidence to convict him,” Alex said.
James says that the arrest made him feel “distressed” and he felt like he had to leave the country to avoid being sent back to jail.
“You’re supposed to be going to jail,” James said in the interview.
“But I’m in America, so I’m not going to go back to that country.”
The second lawyer to go viralAlex’s father James, who was also involved in the case, was also arrested and had to be placed in a cell with three other lawyers, according to James.
The other three lawyers were also put in the same cell.
“It was very stressful, but the officers did everything that they could to make it go away,” James told ABC.
“They put me in solitary and kept me in there for two weeks.
And they took away all of my phone, my computer, my credit cards, my things that I used to live in the house.”
James says he had no idea that his son was going to end up on the receiving end of a video that was so public.
“As soon as I heard the news that my son was in jail, I knew I had to come forward,” he added.
“If my son had gotten arrested, I don.
If he was in the hospital, I would have been arrested too.”
James said that when he got back to the US, he had a hard time talking about the case with his son because he felt guilty about being arrested.
Alex says he and both his parents are still in court every week to hear their cases, but he is planning to take the video out of court and share it with the public.
When the video goes viralAlex and James say they have seen a significant increase in the number of videos showing the legal battles they and their son have been involved in.
“There’s a lot of videos where I can be seen crying, screaming and begging for my son’s life,” James says.
They are also planning to go to court again this week, but James says he wants to do it in a different location.
“What I want is to have a video, that’s all I want,” he explains.
“To have a lawyer, a family member, a friend come and watch
