A hotshot big firm lawyer is hand-picked to go after a South Philadelphia restaurateur, after a sign creates a political and social firestorm. The slick Chairman of the white-shoe firm claims it's the case to get Hunter Gray his well-deserved partnership nod. But the firm's head is up to something much more sinister. Hunter's falling for the Chair's ex, a sexy judge on the Common Pleas Court bench, which doesn't sit well with the cunning boss. With Hunter's best friend nearly killed and the Chief Judge murdered in cold blood, Hunter's life starts to spin out of control, putting survival and his own freedom at the top of his list. Little does he know that one of the least likely people is pulling all the strings, turning the trial lawyer's life into a living hell.
