Karen Patterson, the wealthy widow of Ron Trott's friend in the early days of his firm, calls him to confess she just shot her 17 year-old only son Sam, claiming self-defense after years of violent abuse by him, very rare in murder cases. Ron immediately takes the case, but the evidence seems heavily stacked against her, indeed the boy was shot repeatedly, the fatal first bullet in the back, and Karen clearly had ample occasion to escape and to alert the police but did neither. Although the test panel reacts badly to Ron's aggressive live style and the team had some doubts about his objectivity, even Tom agrees that Ron takes first chair, focusing on Sam's drug addiction and dealing, but even there evidence against Karen and her present boyfriend is found...
