Quotes

Randi: It's an annoying fact of life, but husbands can often see their wives' flaws much more easily than we can see our own. My former husband could certainly see right through me and he'd help me see it to. Usually by striking me with a baseball bat. Then one day, he swung and missed and I stabbed him to death.

"Family Law" What A Legal Drama..👌
2 August 2019 | by carmenjuliannaSee all my reviews

A Great Legal Drama this was. It definitely ended too soon.!!! Can anyone answer why??? It was realistic and authentic..and Christopher McDonald was 'Fab as was Kathleen Quicken. They both deserved an Emmy for sure.! I do believe however the dynamics changed once Tony Danza joined the cast; was his character really needed? It spoilt it for me. He should have been a guest actor, maybe an apposining opposition lawyer; not a full time cast member. However, the rest of the cast held up the series rather well. I still miss this show. Where are the good shows today? Thumbs Up..👍🏿👍🏿👍🏿
