Kya Poole
Courtney Wells (as Sonequa Martin)
Eric Dorfman


Alicia and Carey are assigned to work with Will who defends a fellow lawyer, Eric Dorfman. He's been charged with murder for supposedly telling his drug dealer client about a witness against him; the witness was subsequently killed. It's not the kind of case they would normally get involved in but the firm is having financial problems and the Assistant US Attorney in charge of the case, Harrison Rivers, has gotten up his nose. Soon the alleged drug dealer, Lemond Bishop, hires the firm as his new lawyers. He proves to be a fount of information as well. Peter is still adjusting to living at home. When Will calls Alicia at home, Peter begins to wonder about their relationship. His doubts aren't assuaged when he finds condoms in her night table. Someone is also tweeting about a supposed relationship between Alicia and Will. Eli Gold takes care of it. Written by garykmcd
