Can Opponents in the courtroom become lovers in the bedroom?
An insurrection occurs at the state capitol in Lansing, Michigan. A young woman is trampled to death by the rioters. The woman’s father retains a rookie lawyer from small-town Saline, stunningly beautiful Andrea Kramer, to sue the state of Michigan and the former governor who contested the recent election and inspired the insurrection. Andrea is a struggling sole practitioner who recently decided to hang her shingle. The only office in her price range is a “haunted house and barn,” converted to office space because a family was murdered in the home years before. Everyone who visits swears it “smells funny.”
Michael O’Hara wakes up in a hotel room with no memory of how he got there. A naked woman lies sleeping in his bed. His phone alarm alerts him that he is late for an important meeting at the office, a silk-stocking defense law firm in Detroit. He apologizes to the woman and rushes to the office, where the firm’s senior partner meets with the Michigan Attorney General. The AG wants the firm to represent the state of Michigan in a wrongful death lawsuit resulting from the recent insurrection at the capitol. The senior partner has tapped the handsome, rugged, chiseled, 6-foot, 4-inch Michael, the firm’s most successful trial lawyer, to handle the case.
Andrea is passionate about justice, an advocate for the people, and wants to do well by doing good. Michael is a ‘bad-boy’ country club type lawyer, a sexy playboy who believes in winning at all costs, ethics be damned. The two attorneys clash from day one—when Michael first meets Andrea, he arrogantly informs her that she’s too inexperienced to win this high-profile case. Who will emerge victorious? What will be the personal and professional effects of one’s victory and the other’s defeat? Can romance blossom from such troubled roots? Can a big city ‘bad boy’ win the heart of a small town ‘good girl’? “Love-Hate-Law” answers these questions and more.
