Nick Fallin is a hot-shot, thirtysomething lawyer who must perform community service or risk being disbarred when he's arrested for using drugs. While closing lucrative deals at his father's successful law firm, Nick is forced to work for a child advocacy office run by Alvin Masterson, a boss who plays by the rules and is determined to keep Nick honest. There, he also works with child advocate James Mooney. Though his father, Burton, waivers between pride and concern over his son's work performance, Nick attempts to appease him and the firm's high-paying clients while devoting his time to a place where he can truly help those in need. Nick is joined at Fallin and Associates by his assistant, Amanda Bowles, and colleague, Jake Straka.
