Alicia has been a good wife to her husband, a former state attorney. After a very humiliating sex and corruption scandal, he is behind bars. She must now provide for her family and returns to work as a litigator in a law firm.
Title character Sebastian Stark is an L.A. hot-shot lawyer, who leaves his lucrative career as defender of rich criminals to join the public prosecution under the District Attorney (D.A.), which allows him to form a trial team of his own, consisting of young lawyers, like Casey Woodland, son of a legislator, who thus 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. While in nearly every episode a criminal is found out and put behind bars, after testing out tactics in Shark's private mock court, Sebastian often also has to deal with his daughter Julie, who surprisingly chose after Shark's divorce to live with him rather then her mother in New York.

An opening theme song and main title sequence were developed for for Season One. CBS instead decided to save that time to air commercials and listed the main cast members while the episode played. The theme song, entitled "Open Water" by the band Suicide Celebrity, was aired during overseas broadcasts of the program, but wasn't heard in America until the 2010 reruns aired on the ION network. The Season Two theme was an instrumental version of the song. See more »
In Season One, Jessica's opponent in the race for the D.A.'s office is named Brian Cutler. He is never seen on screen, but people refer to him on multiple occasions. When Kevin Pollak begins playing the character in Season Two, his name becomes Leo Cutler. See more »
Tries for the wit and speed of Boston Legal and fails. While another commentator tries to say "this is what real prosecutors do", he obviously has no clue. Real trial work, especially criminal, is slow, tedious, and boring. 90% of cases don't go to trial, and the ones that do never look anything like TV.
It's not a bad show, but it's not as good as Boston Legal, not by far. The acting is OK, the camera work is mediocre, and the writing is average. Ho hum. Another average court show. If I wanted to watch that I'd watch one of the dozens of law and order knockoffs. There's no real catch to this show.
