Summary
High-powered attorney George Simon frantically juggles the scandals, crimes, and crises that pass through the chrome-and-glass doors of his art deco office high in the Empire State Building. Balanced on an ethical tightrope, Simon engages in insider trading and bleeds funds from wealthy clients, while tending to the needs of the less fortunate New Yorkers who come from his own working-class background. A political enemy uncovers a past legal indiscretion and begins disbarment proceedings, causing Simon's socialite wife to seek comfort in the arms of another man. With the unflagging support of his faithful secretary, Simon attempts to exercise his legalistic wizardry to defend his reputation and protect those who rely upon him for justice
