Boston Legal is a spin-off of the long-running David E. Kelley series The Practice (1997), following the exploits of former Practice character Alan Shore (James Spader) at the legal firm of Crane, Poole, and Schmidt.

In addition, several judges switch between the state court and federal court sets while state court judges and federal court judges are separate and independent.
