  • Sebastian 'the Shark' Stark is L.A.'s hotshot criminal lawyer, who can save even the worst violent scum from conviction by a jury, for an obscene fortune. When wife-beater Gordie Brock he got off is arrested for murdering that same spouse Deena six days later, expecting the Shark to save his bacon again, he finds himself infected with some conscience and stops his profit-driven practice. Now mayor Manuel Delgado seizes his chance to convince Stark to join the underfunded prosecutor's office, which never stood a chance against him, and help justice rather then the rich. District Attorney Jessica 'Jess' Devlin, whom he knows to be far below his class talent-wise, becomes his new boss. He already knows from his private files all the inexperienced by-the-book lawyers he gets assigned as assistants, such as senator Woodland's son Casey, and starts teaching them how to use, even bend the system. Their first case in only 48 hours, is star singer Jenny Dennison, who murdered Terence 'Terry' Rourke but claims he tried to rape her. On the home front, his ex Claire tells Sebastian his alimony duty is over: she has a new fiancé and intends to move to New York with him and their teenage daughter Julie 'Jules', who is about to tell the court which parent she chooses as legal guardian... As the baby sharks fail to deliver the dodgy assignments Sebastian gave them, he offers Jenny a deal, but her expensive defense lawyer Anita Astin rather goes to trial. After a tape of sex between Jessica and Terry is found on the Internet, Stark invites his pupils at home to his mock court room, a collection of furniture from famous real ones, where he always uses the best equipment to drill the whole trial before he sets foot in the court house. Then they go to trial...

  • An arrogant big-shot defense attorney is guilt-ridden after the client he just helped get off commits another murder, so he decides to become a prosecutor.
