Accidental Obsession

Synopsis: Heather Williams' current life is like a fairy tale. A lawyer, she has just won the biggest case in her career, a case which took eighteen months to complete and which most pundits believed she had no chance of winning. The win led to her boss, Saul Rubens, offering her a partnership in the firm, which she accepted leading to yet another prestigious and high profile case being assigned to her. These actions are just the latest in a so far successful career, which has allowed her to live in a beautiful house. She seems to have the eye of handsome private investigator Jack Riley, the two who met on that eighteen month long case and to who Heather in turn is attracted. They feel they can move their relationship into a personal realm now that the case is over. The only black mark in Heather's current life is Ray Johnson, an old flame.

Miss Williams, Miss Williams...

I'm just going to answer

a couple questions.

Ms. Williams, this is an

astounding verdict of Not Guilty

on all counts surprising

many in the legal community

as well as the press,

and public.

My client is innocent and found

to be by a jury of his peers.

Now contrary to public opinion,

a defendant should not be tried

by the media.

The evidence against your client

was overwhelming

from the forensic experts

to the eye witnesses.

Many are shocked by

the outcome of this case

and chalk it up to your

client spending a fortune

on a legal team that was able to

manipulate the system

and win on technicalities.

How do you respond to that?

Twelve neutral members of this

community weighed the evidence

and decided in favour

of my client.

Justice has been served.

That's all for now.

That was defense attorney

Heather Williams

winning the biggest case

of her career.

A huge victory for defense

attorney Heather Williams.

Not many in the legal community

were predicting this outcome.

Oh come on! We won!

You should be ecstatic.

You are a celebrity now.

Oh Lisa, a celebrity? No.


Nancy Grace wants you

on her show.

I'm not interested

in Nancy Grace.

Heather! There you are!

Congratulations kiddo,

you did it.

Thank you.

Now your brilliant work will

make Ruben & Associates

one of the most sought-after

law firms in the state.

And you, rightly so,

deserve to be a part of it.

That is, if you accept.

Saul if you're asking me to be

a partner I absolutely accept.

Oh thank you Saul.

Oh my God.



I will take that.

You go.


Congratulations counsellor.

You did it.

Well, thank you.

We did it.

I just can't believe it's over.

18 months on this case.

Thousands of cups of coffee.

Airports all over the world.

You know what the best part

of this job was?


Getting to know you.

Thank you.

After the dust settles,

would you have dinner with me?

I would love to.



Unfortunately I have

to get going.

Previous commitment.

Oh that's a shame.

Party's just getting started!

I know.

Love to stay but I have a client

leaving the country

in the morning so...


Sounds like there's

a possibility

of some international intrigue

in the works.

Could be but you'll

never know.

Client confidentiality and all.

Call you later.



Good night.

Bye Jack.

Oh stop that.

Why not?

He's handsome and smart

and I saw the way you two looked

at each other.

You know what?

Let's celebrate the victory.

Okay well if you want me

to start dropping any hints

just let me know.



Can I have a moment

with Heather please?


Thank you so much.

Look Heather I've got to go

but before I do,

I just wanted to let you know

that I'm letting you to take

the lead on the Eli Boden case.

Really? Are you sure?

Why not?

You did fantastic on this case.

I mean, you deserve it.

Oh thank you.

Now Boden's got deep pockets.

And if we get this guy

as a client

it could put us on the map.


I'll file a writ.

Judge Andrews

will never go for it

but it will give us some time

to build a defense.

You're going to go far.

Aww, thank you Saul.

Have a good night.

Everybody having

a good time?

Congrats all, everybody.

Well done.


What the hell are you

doing here?

You look as lovely as ever.

What's it been,

almost two years?


I see you all over

the television.

Thought I'd come down here

and congratulate you in person.

Oh cut the crap.

What are you doing here?

Is there somewhere more private
