Recap of Family Law season 1 and 2:
This show centers around the protagonist, who is a high-paid lawyer for personal injuries. She is herself injured metaphorically because she, in her personal life, is very good at blaming others because of her own problems. When Abby’s husband kicks her out, scared because of her constant drinking, he thinks she gets unbearable and is very difficult to handle.
He also removes her from the family home. As a by-product, she shows up, is drunk in the court, and gets punishment. She is not just suspended but also fined and is only allowed to practice if there is any other senior lawyer who wants to give her a chance. Here is when, because of her circumstances, she is pushed into another firm called AA, where Harry is the only one who trusts her and is ready to take that risk. He has a family of lawyers who are competing to get the highest chair, and when Abby goes there, she is great at her job, and therefore, there is a new drama that starts to unfold. The three seasons are going to follow her journey personally as well as professionally.
