What fiction book series do involve what TVTropes calls "omnidisciplinary lawyers"?

Asked by luigirovatti (2609points) March 14th, 2022

On TV Tropes there are a lot of TV series with these qualities (The Good Wife, Suits, Boston Legal…) but found only 2 examples under the literature section: “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Perry Mason”. So, I need to ask the experts about this. If you want to check, here: https://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OmnidisciplinaryLawyer

You mean like an old school country doctor?

General case lawyers do still exist, but they’re usually in solo practice with limited resources. More often you find that full-service model in mid-size to large law offices where the firm takes clients with different issues, then assigns partners according to specialty. And you’ve sort of already tagged the best examples from movies & tv.

A few others:
LA Law
The Practice
Suits
The Verdict
A Civil Action

@JLoon: I don’t mean to offend you, but in this case I’m more interested in fiction books.
