Thirteen years after giving up her career as a lawyer to focus on husband and family, Alicia Florrick returns to a large law firm to start over again. Her husband, the State's Attorney for Cook County, was forced to resign after a sex scandal involving public funds and prostitutes. On her first day, she is assigned a pro bono case and is defending a woman accused of killing her ex-husband and trying to cover it up with a fake carjacking. The previous trial ended in a hung jury which, Alicia learns, was very much leaning toward conviction.With the help of the firm's in-house investigator, Alicia looks to open up a new line of defense against the advice of the firm's senior female partner who previously handled the case.
Did You Know?
Good morning. An hour ago I resigned as State's Attorney of Cook County. I did this with a heavy heart and a deep commitment to fight these scurrilous charges. I will be clear: I have never abused my office. I have never traded lighter sentences for financial or sexual favours. At the same time, I need to atone for my personal failings with my wife, Alicia, and our two children.
