Detectives Briscoe and Logan investigate the death of lawyer Arthur Kapinski, who is found shot in the head while he was seated at his office desk. They find that Kapinski had a number of irate clients who felt he wasn't adequately representing them. Several of them were trying to retrieve money from a failed Savings and Loan run by Willard Tappan and several clients had paid Kopinski up front to pay for his research. Kopinski was running a scam and the police focus on John Curran who apparently snapped after learning his mother had paid him the last of her savings. The case goes full circle and ADA McCoy is convinced that Tappan was somehow behind it. It's not quite straightforward however and ADA McCoy has to get Curran to testify against Tappan.

Notoriety and Sleaziness
17 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Some two bit lawyer gets shot in his midtown office and admittedly both Jerry Orbach and Chris Noth shed no tears. From what they learn of this guy, he's quite the sleazy shyster. But he actually may have been on to something.

That something was the hidden assets of a Donald Trump like millionaire who bilked hundreds of investors of their life savings. He got a trip to Club Fed and now he's in a half way house.

The guy who shot the lawyer is played by Jonathan Hogan and he's bitter and angry about the loss of his mother's savings. With that temper and how he feels he's easily manipulated.

And manipulated he is by Michael Zaslow as the recent Club Fed guest. But what happens here does not rise to the level of a crime. All that happened was that he was pointed in a right/wrong direction depending on your point of view.

Zaslow is wonderful in a part that calls for him to be notorious and sleazy and without a conscience at all. But Law And Order was really reaching here. I truly suspect the Appellate Division and if not the Court Of Appeals would reverse all of Sam Waterston's work against Zaslow in a nano-second.
