Short Summary Edit

A burned-out attorney gets a second chance for redemption when he agrees to pursue a wrongful death lawsuit against the biggest client of his former law firm.

Full SummaryEdit

Billy McBride is a washed-up, ambulance-chasing lawyer who spends more time drinking than he does meeting his clients or with his estranged family. Michelle McBride and Callie Senate, senior lawyers at Cooperman McBride, are unhappy with their junior associate Lucy Kittridge's stuttering in court, but Callie is unable to fire her because this would open the firm up to litigation. Patty Solis-Papagian find Billy at the end of a AA meeting and unsuccessfully tries to convince him to represent her neighbor Rachel Kennedy on a small case involving Borns Technology, one of Cooperman McBride's biggest clients. Rachel's brother Ryan Larson is said to have committed suicide by blowing up a boat that belonged to his employer Borns Tech, but Rachel does not believe this story and wishes to sue them for wrongful death. After Rachel seeks him out, Billy conducts some investigation and agrees to take the case. He visits Ryan's widow Gina and son Jason, but Gina does not agree with Rachel's suspicions. After he leaves, Gina calls Cooperman McBride upon which Donald Cooperman anticipates that Billy will file a wrongful death lawsuit and asks Michelle to have Lucy start drafting a response. Over the course of the day, Billy finds two fishermen who witnessed and recorded the explosion that killed Ryan and whose description of events further solidifies his interest in pursuing the case. Billy then seeks out Brittany Gold to work as his legal assistant. When Billy files the lawsuit, Cooperman insists that Callie argue for the dismissal of the case in court, once again overriding Michelle's objections regarding his choice. His estranged daughter Denise came to ask to stay for the night after a fight with her mother and after a short father daughter dinner the two caught sight of a man in black who appears to have been stalking him through the episode. While driving Denise back to her mother's house, Billy is pulled over and assaulted by a cop, and comes to in lockup.
