As the hit Irish legal drama returns, solicitor Tara Rafferty is embattled but not beaten. She has built a new life for herself after leaving her cheating fiancé, Eric (Rory Keenan,War & Peace), and the high-powered law firm where they both worked. But with one of her employees betraying her and another in jail, she struggles to keep her fledgling practice afloat. Convinced that her former boss-Eric's scheming father-is behind it all, Tara decides to strike back.

To pay the bills, Tara takes on clients whose legal problems range from deportation, to DIVORCE from a bigamist, to a lawsuit against a convent. As she frequently faces off against Eric and her former colleagues in court, Tara's mentor, Vincent (Neil Morrissey), leads a high-level corruption inquiry that could endanger them both.

Parade raves that "Huberman has helped create a knockout character," and the stellar cast also features Moe Dunford (Vikings), Fiona O'Shaughnessy (Utopia), and Maria Doyle KENNEDY as a formidable solicitor.
