In the main story line, Kellerman is defending a man who may have been incorrectly identified in a robbery. He chooses to have the client waive a jury trial, only to have Judge Kessler secretly put political pressure on the trial judge to find the client guilty. Resolution comes with the help of Charlie going behind Kessler's back. The second story line has Natalia defending an amputated veteran who was arrested buying a months supply of heroin to treat his phantom limb pains, but accused of being a dealer. A new subplot has Woolsey defending an exotic dancer who is a law student by day. This may turn into a longer lasting relationship in the future.
