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 four, for those big courtroom scenes that take several hours to be filmed completely, Margulies would shoot the scenes where Alicia is an active part first, then they would shoot scenes with the other cast members, where she would have to be in the background for coverage once or twice, and then she would leave the set to prepare her next scenes, or have the rest of the day off.
