One of the best lawyer drama's ever.
27 February 2001 | by dppSee all my reviews

Family Law is one of the best lawyer drama's that I have ever seen. It is brilliantly written and acted. Kathleen Quinlan should at least receive an emmy nomination for her portrayal as a single mother who is trying to run a law firm. With the addition of Tony Danza, this series is surely one of, if not the best show on television right now.
