According to Julianna Margulies
, after three exhausting years juggling the demanding show schedule and dealing with her baby's first years, she made a deal with creators Robert King
and Michelle King
. Starting in season 4, for those big courtroom scenes that take several hours to be filmed completely, Margulies would shot the scenes where Alicia is and active part first, then they would shot scenes with the other actors where she would have to be on the background for coverage once or twice and then she would leave set to prepare her next scenes or have the rest of the day off.
