The CW has released the Official Synopsis of Family Law episode “Legacy” (1.10) that will be aired on Sunday, December 11 at 8:00-9:00 PM.
When Svensson and Associates’ receptionist Nina (guest star Kelli Ogmundson) discovers she is not her father’s biological daughter, Abigail (Jewel Staite, “Firefly,” “The L.A. Complex”) builds a case against the fertility clinic where Nina was conceived. Synopsis: After Nina discovers she is not her father’s biological daughter, Abigail traces a history of malpractice at the fertility clinic where Nina was conceived. Abigail predicts a huge civil claim case, which means lots of capital for the firm — but she tells Harry (Victor Garber, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” “Alias”) she will only work on the case with Daniel (Zach Smadu, “Cardinal”), who is leaving. Meanwhile, Lucy (Genelle Williams, “The Expanse”) is fully committing to parenthood as Maggie (guest star Ali Liebert, “One Of Us Is Lying”) embarks on in-vitro, and Harry weighs an exciting new relationship against the prospect of losing his kids. Abigail prepares to move back home with Frank (guest star Luke Camilleri “The Magician”) and the kids, but is Frank having second thoughts?
“Family Law” is starring Jewel Staite, Victor Garber), Zach Smadu, Genelle Williams, Lauren Holly.
The episode was written by Susin Nielsen and directed by Andy Mikita (#110).
Family Law centers around Abigail Bianchi, a high-paid personal-injury lawyer who’s good at blaming others – particularly when it comes to her own problems. After Abby’s husband kicks her out of the family home because of her drinking, she goes on a bender, shows up drunk in court and pukes on a client. The law society’s punishment is swift. She’s suspended, fined, and can only practice law again if she finds a senior lawyer who is willing to take her on and mentor her for a one year probationary period. Only one man is willing to take that risk: Harry Svensson, who runs the top family law practice in the city.
