It's not easy being green, and it's probably not easiest being the son or daughter of an attorney either.  The bar is set high, no pun intended (okay, maybe a little one) and arguing for your freedom becomes all the more challenging when the case is made to professional arguers.  But that never stopped anyone from finding their own spotlight.

Coming off the heels of the Oscars, here are a few notable celebs who have found stardom of their own, despite--or maybe because of -their litigating parental(s).  A nod to the circa-2004 legal lifestyle mag "Jungle Law" for the topic concept...whatever happened to them.

a few celebrities who have a parent with an Esq. badge:

  • Conan O'Brien
  • Katie Holmes
  • Christina Ricci
  • Edward Norton
  • Scott Bakula
  • Philip Seymour Hoffman
  • Tea Leoni
  • Benjamin McKenzie
  • Sarah Hughes
  • Amanda Peet
