The life of a high-power celebrity lawyer

The life of a high-power celebrity lawyer

Have you ever wondered what life would be like as a high-powered lawyer? Or have you ever considered what you would do with a $25,000 signing bonus? Thanks to the hit TV show 'Suits,' you might seriously be considering these questions.

The show has been creating a lot of buzz, starting up again with new epiodes starting January 17th, and now "Suits," along with iHeartRadio, has launched a brand new contest inspired by the USA network show. You can enter to win a $25,000 "signing bonus" by submitting your information on the official contest website.

Ready to live like some of the high-powered lawyers on the show? How about in real life? Here are ten of the most famous celebrity lawyers in the business:

Leslie Abramson
Leslie has represented clients like Phil Spector, and Eric and Lyle Menendez. She is most famous for defending the Menendez brothers after they shot and killed their parents in 1989.

Gloria Allred
The woman who boasts herself to be "the most famous woman attorney practicing law in the nation today," she's represented the family of Nicole Brown Simpson, Paula Jones, and Amber Frey.

David Boies
David's law career skyrocketed when he defended IBM against antitrust allegations. He's represented celebs like Michael Moore, George Steinbrenner, Carly Simon, and Al Gore.

Alan Dershowitz
A lawyer and Harvard professor, who is known to some of his students as "Dersh," he is best known for his participation in the O.J. Simpson murder trial. His clients include O.J. Simpson, Mike Tyson, socialite Claus van Bulow and Patricia Hearst.

Martin Garbus
Martin has a long roster of clients including Al Pacino, Robert Redford Tom Brokaw, Sean Connery, Richard Gere, Nelson Mandela, and even once represented Barry Bonds' ex-girlfriend. 

Mark Geragos
Representing and then being fired by Michael Jackson in his child molestation trials, Mark has also represented the likes of Winona Ryder, Scott Peterson, and Chris Brown - who hired him right away after the pictures of Rihanna beaten up surfaced.

Allen Grubman
New York Magazine once named Allen the music industry's "sole superpower attorney." His roster of clients includes Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez.

Howard K. Stern
Everyone remembers Howard from his days of representing the late Anna Nicole Smith. A part of Anna Nicole's reality show, he also claimed to be the father of her child, which turned out to be not true. After her death, he was arrested for providing Anna Nicole with controlled substances.

Shawn Chapman Holley
In recent years, probably one of the hardest working lawyers - only because she represented Lindsay Lohan. Holley has managed (for the most part) to keep the troubled actress out of prison - so far.   

Gerald Shargel
Gerald is famous for defending guys like Marc Dreier, Joe Halderman, and Murder Inc founder Irv Gotti.
