It's for my father. He is also an attorney, travels about 40 miles each way to the office every day, travels to court, occasionally has a client in the car. He doesn't care about "prestige" or name, so doesn't have to be Acura, Infinity, Mercedes, etc. Needs to be a reliable car, Auto trans, good gas mileage on Regular gas.
Right now he's looking at a used Chevy Malibu, which I told him is the wrong choice. He is currently driving an older Benz that he bought from one of the partners for $3500 (great price) and its cost of maintenance are starting to get high with the mileage.
