After Nick successfully avoids being charged in Mandy Gressler’s death, he is immediately thrown back into the thick of things. For Legal Services of Pittsburgh (L.S.P.), Nick is drawn into a case where he is assigned as Guardian ad Litem for a 13-year-old boy Ronnie Wagner. Wagner is charged with his mother’s murder and is being tried as an adult, which leaves the possibility that Ronnie could receive the death penalty. His lawyer Vic Lafferty is fighting to have Ronnie’s trial transferred to juvenile court. As Nick digs deeper into the case, he discovers information that could prove Ronnie would benefit from future therapy, which is one of the criteria for moving the case back to juvenile court. However, in order to provide the necessary evidence, a sacrifice will have to be made by Ronnie’s case worker Laurie Solt. Meanwhile, Jake Straka and James Mooney are trying to get Fallin & Straka set up but Nick is unhappy about the kinds of clients that Jake is choosing to sign.
