From the creators of “The Practice” and “Boston Legal”, Emmy Award winning creator David E. Kelley brings his unique forte in storytelling to this new television series “Harry’s Law”. A series about how fate brings people together, starring Academy Award winner Kathy Bates (from "Misery," "About Schmidt").

Harriet (Bates), Matthew (Ben Chaplin, "Me and Orson Welles") and Malcolm (Aml Ameen, "Kidulthood") could not be any more different. Harriet is an ex-patent lawyer who, having just been fired from her undemanding job is completely disillusioned with her success and looking for a fresh start. Her world unexpectedly collides with Malcolm's -- a young man trying to figure out life.

When he finds out Harriet is a lawyer, he begs her to represent him in an upcoming criminal case. Matthew, a dreamer at heart and also recently fired from his job as a high school teacher, is introduced to Harriet through Malcolm, a previous student of his.

All three have realized that they are all looking for a fresh start by the time these three have crossed paths. Now, the most unlikely of people are starting a law practice in the most unlikely of places -- a rundown shoe store.

We have to acknowledge how Katy Bates stays stronger and how she remains to be a great actress with a very good performance as a patent lawyer who eventually ends up supporting the less well off members of society in the criminal court.

Harry’s Law is not your usual law show, where people get to scold one another and goes after each opposing team for their own benefit, the show is totally a different story. The TV series is well written, and it’s so hard to let it pass by. Proof of it that despite the mixed reaction from critics, the series is one of NBC’s highest scripted drama and already been renewed for a second season.
