Simon MacHeath, a brash and firey lawyer, has left his job at a prestigious law firm to start his own practice. His reputation for exploding into emotional outbursts during trials has gotten him in to repeated confrontations with judges, but he has a very sincere compassion for his clients, many of whom are victims of an uncaring justice system.
