Dylan is given an impossible pro bono custody case, Beth keeps mum when a 90-year-old man signs an agreement thinking that she's his daughter, Liam must get a client to sign with the firm under false pretenses, Addy finally gets some attention from her boss when she speaks her mind, and Malcolm gets off on the wrong foot when he's hired outside of the firm's traditional process.
Beth goes head to head with her lawyer father in court while Addy's new clients put the firm in jeopardy. Meanwhile Cliff reveals something to Susan which ends up sending Katie to the Montana offices indefinitely.
Addy and Beth are assigned to defend a sexual harassment case in which the accused displays behaviors not quite contrary to the charges. Malcolm is stuck when his son is expelled from school for bringing a weapon on school grounds. Liam continues his pursuit of Beth and asks for help while Cliff pursues his wife and tries to get her to reconsider her decision in expelling him for their home for his infidelity.
When a promising female tennis star loses her scholarship, Susan gives Beth and Dylan the challenging pro-bono case -- which questions the player's personal identity -- while Liam and Malcolm are pitted against each other.
Dylan and Liam form a bond when they realize they're the only ones who think their client is innocent. And much to Addy's -- and everyone else's -- surprise, her long distance boyfriend arrives with a plan of his own.
When all the interns are informed they are expected to attend a fashionable work function, Addy balks at attending & Beth refuses to ask her significant other to attend with her. Clients in the firm include a high school student accused of taking a risqué photograph of his girlfriend and an athletic bicyclist who got run down by a bus.
