Corpus Christi-based personal injury specialist is the real deal — just check the surname


US law firm advertising hoardings provide an almost endless supply of legal profession comedy — so it’s off to Corpus Christi in Texas for the latest instalment.

This one is for all those who never really bought Michael Keaton, Val Kilmer, George Clooney (aka, Mr Amal Alamuddin) or Christian Bale in the role of the Caped Crusader.

Legal Cheek gives you Christopher Batman, a former member of the US navy’s judge advocate general corps and now a lawyer specialising in maritime personal injury work. Indeed, pride of place on the firm’s website home page is a shot of the Bat Boat yacht.


Still no sign of Robin, but perhaps a paralegal role beckons…
