Law must always protect justice, not injustice, though it is capable of either.
The fight for justice is prevalent with Bennie Rosato, founder of the Rosato & DiNunzio law firm. She has never recovered from an old case involving a 12 year old Jason Leftawvick who was sent to juvenile detention center for being involved in a pushing match that was called fighting. After Columbine, schools had no tolerance for fighting and sometimes no tolerance means no justice. Bennie is haunted by what happened and not being able to fight for Jason. The corruption that was hidden in the case and revealed a little too late. Jason had brought out the motherly instincts that she never knew existed. Now 13 years later, Jason is in trouble again for murder and has called Bennie claiming that she owes him. How these two cases are related and was Jason framed?
Bennie is a lawyer with heart and she is determined to prove Jason innocence.
I liked how the law was displayed and how the court drama played out. The reasoning behind the questions asked and not asked. It was a female version of Perry Mason. With a surprise who dun it. I am hearing the theme song now.
