    Arrested for a murder you didn't commit? Michael Gresham is a criminal attorney who defends his clients with an iron will.

A law partner will have to step up and do for him what he can't do for himself. Isn't that how it should work? Watch up close as a tried and proven criminal defense lawyer is forced to face the most important case of his career.
