We asked around 100 attorneys what their favorite LawTube channels are. Here are their responses along with some of our own commentary.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@LegalEagle
Devin Stone is the big bird at LegalEagle, a YouTube channel with outstanding content. Followers (Legal Eagles) who tune in watch Devin’s coverage of recent events, “lawyer reacts to __” style videos and much more. Devin touches on hot topics such as lawsuits in the news (think: Johnny Depp, Donald Trump, Alex Jones, Elon Musk) and topics such as vaccine mandates. LegalEagle is the epitome of excellent content marketing as he sells Legal Eagle Exam Prep on his website, https://www.legaleagleprep.com/.
Lawful Masses with Leonard French
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@lawfulmasses
Leonard French is a Pennsylvania copyright attorney. He’s learned the fact that the general public doesn’t know much about the law, and he’s made it his mission to educate them on it. It’s his goal to devote more time to Lawful Masses as viewership of the you tube website revenue increases along with viewers. His goal is four videos a week. Did you know that you might not own your own tattoo? What about Guess being caught stealing Banksy artwork? The videos are anywhere from 15 minutes to over an hour, and they’re certainly interesting. Get rid of the hats though, Mr. French.
Nate the Lawyer
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@NateTheLawyer

Emily D. Baker
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@TheEmilyDBaker
Emily Baker is the lawyer that everybody wants to hear. She’s billed as everybody’s favorite legal commentator. A lawyer for more than 15 years, she’s a former prosecutor at the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office. She now earns more with her YouTube Channel than she did as an Assistant District Attorney. That’s not hard with more than 300,000 subscribers paying to have their comments posted on her show. She’s covered the Johnny Depp and Amber Heard trial, the Alex Murdaugh murder trial and the Alec Baldwin and the Idaho mass murder trial. She’s married to former CIA agent and has four children.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@erichunley
Eric Hunley’s YouTube show is called “Unstructured,” and it’s about what makes people tick. His demeanor is that of a reserved priest. He informally dives into the untold side of popular culture, mindset, persuasion and body language along with their consequences. He also unmasks crime and law enforcement, including 12 FBI and 5 CIA agents. Subscribers are given the opportunity to ask questions themselves.
Real World Police
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@RealWorldPolice
This U.S. YouTube channel is an investigative channel covering crime and law enforcement. Original footage is published with exclusive reporting. The channel has been in existence for a little over five years, but it has produced more than 700 videos with a daily circulation greater than that of the New York Times. They won’t publish footage that has been published elsewhere unless there is something new to add. That’s because there is plenty of action everywhere. Their ethics are not compromised so far, and their goal is to have the truth come to light.
Audit the Audit
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@AuditTheAudit
This is another police YouTube channel where police interaction is sorted out on who is in the right and who is in the wrong. It’s much like Real World Police, but the interaction is interrupted by a moderator who cites specific laws and cases that are on target with the conduct exhibited or complained of. The auditor doesn’t decide any cases. He leaves that to the courts, but he does give a 360 degree view of the law surrounding arrests or non-arrests. For video footage of police interactions coupled with an articulate rendition of the law surrounding certain circumstances, Audit the Audit gets the grade of an “A”.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@UncivilLaw
A Texas and Virginia attorney remarking on current new and legal stories and the “misfortunes of others.” He’s currently in Austin, and like many Texans, has an affectation toward cowboy hats sometimes. Although he focuses heavily on the U.S. Supreme Court, much attention is also being paid to the Alex Murdaugh trial along with the cases involving Aiden Fucci and Steven Lorenzo. Both Fucci and Lorenzo have entered guilty pleas and awaiting sentencing while Murdaugh is presently in trial. Kurt Mueller hosts the show for 122,000 current subscribers.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@RekietaLaw
Minnesota lawyer Nick Rekieta’s show, Legal Insurrection, became popular during the Kyle Rittenhouse trial. It was covered by Rekieta and three other panelists who would remark on the trial, for better or for worse. Then he got kicked off of YouTube for repeated violations of “community guidelines,” due to his fits of alleged drunken behavior. After getting reinstated, he’s primarily on his own doing the same thing, He’s covered Darrell Brooks, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard, the Murdaugh murders in South Carolina, along with other cases in the news, sometimes quite well. Rekieta is immensely popular, but he probably needs to straighten out. Alcohol and the mouth running just don’t mix.
Robert Gouveia Esq.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@RobertGouveiaEsq
Robert Gouveia is formerly Robert Gruber, is a criminal defense attorney in Scottsdale with R&R Law Group, PLLC, who hosts Watching the Watchers. He changed his name to Gouveia from Gruber because of a “labeling error” when he was born. Gouveia is an advocate of criminal justice reform who notes the misconduct of those involved in the criminal justice system, and the need for a higher quality of defense representation. His practice is concentrated in DUI, criminal defense and white-collar crimes. He strives to help good people in need of quality representation and results. His show is primarily international political commentary.
The DUI Guy
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@TheDUIGuyPlus
Larry Forman is the DUI guy in Louisville, KY. He’s a well-known, enthusiastic and inspiring auto accident lawyer, and was born to an educated family in Leningrad, USSR. He came to the United States when he was three-years-old. Mr. Forman’s YouTube site does provide footage of him in court, and it shows a well-prepared criminal defense attorney. What his channel doesn’t show is footage of him in a civil court representing an injured client. As fees are typically one-third of any sums derived from suit or settlement, they’re typically much higher than those in DUI cases.
Law Talk with Mike
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@LawTalkWithMike
Mike Gravlin is a Chicago lawyer who’s the host of the YouTube show Law Talk with Mike. His practice is in personal injury and workers’ compensation. His YouTube site has little to do with those and much to do about how foolish litigants can be when they enter a courtroom. The videos are from across the country, and they’re hilarious. Mike could go pretty far with this format if he had the time. Unfortunately, he’s still young and would rather practice law. Put it on your favorites list. You’ll quickly learn that you’re not so crazy.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@maneeshmukhi
The law of immigration is profoundly complex and detailed. This lady does it well, and she breaks it down to a level that any English speaking individual can understand. She has more than 30,000 subscribers, and her website is growing every week. There are always questions about naturalization, green cards, temporary residence and visas that might be converted. This woman’s you tube page is going to grow. If you’re an intending immigrant or in this country already, check out her channel
The Civil Rights Lawyer
YouTube Channel: https://thecivilrightslawyer.com/youtube-channel/
Another area of the profession that doesn’t get much coverage, but our freedoms depend on it. Attorney John H. Bryan uses live video footage of police and judicial misconduct to keep police and the judiciary from breaking the laws that they’re entrusted with. Police officers and judges in West Virginia have been fired as a result of Mr. Bryan’s efforts. He’s not your typical civil rights lawyer. There need to be more lawyers like him.
Andrew Flusche Attorney at Law
YouTube Channel: www.youtube.com/c/Andrewflusche
This Virginia attorney is skinny and funny while also being quite competent at traffic, misdemeanors and felonies. His delivery of materials is packed with humor, but on target and serious. He has a new video every Tuesday. Flusche even portrays many of the characters in many of the videos. I personally wish he’d post more often and get his viewership up. Andrew Flusche gives solid legal advice and he’s entertaining too.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/judgejp
Yes, it’s the immensely popular Judge Jeanine Pirro again, with a vocal audience this time. The former prosecutor and judge details the facts of each case, lets the parties present their respective sides and renders a decision. She was divorced from her husband of nearly four decades in 2021. He was sentenced to prison for tax crimes, but pardoned. She’s often like the old Jerry Springer show with the cases she hears. Litigants include Joey Buttafuoco, Dennis Rodman and anybody else she can get on the show with a name. Indeed, she also hears cases involving the little guy. She’s more laid back and entertaining than ever.
Rabalais Estate Planning
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@americasestateplanninglawy1946
This lawyer is geared toward the higher end Louisiana earner, but he’s also geared down to the common man. No doubt that he knows what he’s doing. As opposed to most lawyers in this field, he also appears to have a personality. Beware if you’re not a Louisiana resident. Although the advice he gives appears to be solid, it might be pursuant to Louisiana civil law which is different than that of the 49 other states.
The Pot Brothers at Law
YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/@potbrothersatlaw
You might think that the Craig and Marc Wasserman are just a couple of flamboyant loudmouths. But they offer sound legal advice for the common smoker of weed. They do more than just pot cases though, from simple assault to cannabis DUI, to violent crimes and expungement. They also do regulatory licensing. If you haven’t seen these two in action, be sure to take a look. You’re not going to find many like these two guys.
Kenneth S. Nugent, P.C.
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@attorneykengugent
Here’s another “one call that’s all” lawyer. He’ll tell you that he can’t get you the same money that somebody else did, but he does encourage possible clients to do something about their situations. He seems to be a good ole’ Georgia boy. His YouTube ads are on the safe side. When you make that kind of money, your you tube commercials would also be on the safe side. Ken Nugent plays the safe side well.
Bryan Wilson The Texas Law Hawk
YouTube Channel: http://www.youtube.com/c/BryanWilsonLawHawk
The Texas Law Hawk’s practice is primarily DUI and personal injury. His you tube ads are a bit over the top, or should we say way over the top. He’s continually shouting too. Mr. Wilson worked through law school. You might see him as the Texas Law Hawk, playing different roles, always screaming, doing wheelies on a motorcycle and crashing through a door, parachuting and who knows what’s next. He’s on my radar screen for the time being as America’s Loudest Lawyer.
Shouse Law Group
YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/@ShouseLawGroupChannel
Primarily personal injury, workers compensation, criminal defense and immigration defense. This is the website that most lawyers turn to for information on California law. The elements of California laws are laid out in a highly organized and understandable fashion. They explain DUI and DUID while also laying out what constitutes these and other offenses. On the accident side, the elements of each tort are fully explained with illustrative examples. They portray themselves as David against Goliath, a small law firm taking on police, employers, insurance companies and immigration to get the best result for the client.
