Dennis Bukowski may be an attorney at law, but his job often has him toe-to-toe with super villains. This isn’t the kind of profession where you can simply fight crime – well, legally speaking, that is – but if you watch She-Hulk: Attorney at Law , you might think otherwise! A spinoff of the Marvel series Daredevil , this legal drama follows Jennifer Walters (aka She-Hulk) as she tackles criminal cases with her no-nonsense attitude and sassy personality.

How he became a lawyer
Dennis Bukowski has a hard time staying out of trouble. Especially when that trouble is an assortment of super villains. As he takes on the cases of these nefarious foes, it’s his job to get in their heads and figure out how they plan to beat the rap. But does he have what it takes to fight off She-Hulk? Find out in this installment of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law!
What it was like portraying his character
I get so excited anytime I get a new script to read, which is pretty much every day, because it means that I’ll get to see one of my best friends for about an hour. Drew Matthews portrays the titular character of She-Hulk: Attorney at Law and our friendship goes way back to when we were in high school. He was originally from Milwaukee, but he grew up here too and left for college up north.
His favorite part about being on set
I think that my favorite part about being on set is feeling like I’m a small part of telling this big story. It’s a tremendous honor to be a part of the MCU and interact with these iconic characters. I can’t say enough how much I love having these experiences, it’s something that you never forget.

His experience being in court scenes for the show
When it comes to preparing for the day’s scenes, Matthews’ process varies depending on whether or not the script calls for dialogue. In the event of a speaking role, he’ll focus on learning his lines and thinking about the motivations of his character.
Behind the scenes
I had the pleasure of working with Drew Matthews to portray Dennis Bukowski, a lawyer with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office. We worked together on my first day on set where I was given strict instructions not to break character while speaking to Jennifer Walters or Bruce Banner.
Favorite scene in episode 1.02 Full Disclosure
This episode was full of great scenes, but my favorite was the final scene between Jessica Jones and the psychotic Titan. They fought in an alley, with super strength and energy blasts, until a shield strike left her dangling from a fire escape. She asked Jessica if he wanted to take advantage of her while she was defenseless, but Jones responded no. It seemed like the rivalry had developed into something more personal than just superhero vs. supervillain.
The Best Quote
Why you so against the superhero biz? asks Buscemi, waiting for a response.
I’m not against it, I say. And that’s not my call.
Buscemi nods and lights up a cigarette, looking at me like he’s trying to figure out how much of what I’m saying is bullshit.
He says, Guess we should get going then.
Case File 1
Dennis is defending an accused member of an armed robbery crew. The evidence points to him, but his confession appears to be coerced. He tells her he’s not the one who pulled the trigger. When she gets back to the office, they talk it over and decide they’ll have to get creative with this case. They plan on putting a microscope on every piece of evidence and testimony in order to build a strong defense for their client before they go head-to-head with the prosecution at trial.
Fans of the She-Hulk comics have always wondered what her alter ego, Jennifer Walters, was like. The answer is finally revealed in the debut issue of a new Marvel comic series called She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, which has been written by Marc Sumerak and drawn by Will Sliney. Jennifer Walters is all woman, with brains to match her brawn!
