Someone's seen "On Trial: Lee Harvey Oswald."

Came here to say David Boies, was not disappointed.

F. Lee Bailey if he's still alive. Possibly the greatest defense attorney of all time, may qualify as one of the lawyers OP mentions that transcend the profession and are known by laypeople. He was pretty famous in the 60s. There's a great interview of him by William F. Buckley on YouTube, as well as his cross examination of the detective in the OJ Simpson case.

Also, like four of the partners at Williams and Connolly should probably be counted as the greatest lawyers alive.

That is a seriously impressive Wikipedia page. And agree with Bruce Wayne, pretty inspiring. I guess he's as close to a bad ass attorney as they come. F. Lee is also pretty impressive.
