Family Law is Outstanding
28 August 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't been this pleased with a legal drama since LA Law. The multi-dimensional cast is fabulous and the writing is absolutely flawless. I am also pleased to see Dixie Carter given the opportunity to spread her glorious wings. I do wish, however, the show would broaden Salli Richardson's portrayal of Viveca Foster. I hope they remember that she is not only beautiful--she can act.
