Philly | 2001
Kathleen Maguire is a year out of law school and steadily building her reputation as a tough, no-nonsense defense attorney in the weathered courtrooms of Philadelphia's City Hall. Kathleen's ex is the formidable, shrewdly arrogant District Attorney, and she's a single mom to a bright 10-year-old son. Kathleen's caseload doubles when her law partner gets shipped off to the sanitarium following weeks on a pill-fed fad diet. Enter the charming Will Froman, a popular young attorney who wants out of the Public Defender's office. He takes opportunistic pity on Kathleen, convincing her that they'd make a good team.
