Title character Sebastian Stark is an L.A. hot-shot lawyer who leaves his lucrative career as a defender of rich criminals to try public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.), He forms a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who get a opportunity to learn straight from the master, if they can stand his hellish pace and walk the tight rope between respecting the law while using it and winning whatever it takes. A P.I. helps out digging up factual information. In nearly every episode a criminal is found out and put behind bars, after testing out tactics in Stark's private mock court, Sebastian often also has to deal with his daughter Julie, who surprisingly chose live with him rather than her mother in New York after their divorce.

I love this show for many reasons. One, I love James Woods. He's a great actor and does a terrific job playing the role of a determined ex-defense attorney becoming exactly what he used to defend his clients against. Two, I love the story lines and how fast paced this show is. From the beginning, each episode leaves you on the edge of your seat waiting for more. There are so many emotional elements in each episode that'll make you laugh, cry, become upset, and become anxious all within 10 minutes of one another. Lastly, this show offers what most crime/law dramas don't offer: The personal lives of the main characters (Danielle Panabaker does a terrific job with her role also). You will not be disappointed with this show, it is one of the best dramas out there right now. I really hope CBS will hold on to this show for at least 5 seasons or more.
