Alicia works a pro bono case, defending a man who stands accused of committing murder during a convenience store robbery gone wrong. Even though her client is innocent, a witness has identified him as the shooter. Matters are complicated further when Diane, trying to keep the firm afloat during hard economic times, tells her to plead it out - she wants all of her attorneys on paid cases only. When Diane discovers that Celeste's old firm has gone under and his former partner is looking for a new place to take her lucrative bankruptcy division, Will attempts to get her on board at Lockhart/Gardner. Celeste, however, has other plans: she wants Will to leave the firm and come work with her.
