Pro Bono Attorney
The time is ripe: Lawyers Paula Dennstein and Therese Schwarz are opening a law fi rm together! But their fi rst case is quite a challenge. Their job is to protect a single widower from the fraudulent machinations of a prefabricated home company – of course, pro bono! But things are also going haywire in their private lives. While Paula’s marriage is about to fall apart, Therese meets Thomas and is completely enthralled by him. The attraction seems to be mutual, until Therese realizes who Thomas really is.
Paula Dennstein and Therese Schwarz take on a spectacular case that promises great publicity for their law fi rm. The politician Konrad Wagner is seeking legal defense against a speculative press story denouncing him as a “groper”. For Paula, the innocence of her long-time friend is beyond doubt. She hands over the delicate assignment to Therese to clarify where the allegations come from and to discredit them. Meanwhile, Paula is handling a drugs violation by Therese’s younger sister Marita – of course “pro bono” – because her son Ferdinand is not completely uninvolved.
Attorney Dr. Therese Schwarz takes over a highly explosive case: her once big love Fritz, organic farmer and now married is an illegitimate son of the deceased Count Florentin Dennstein, considered with one third of the entire property. Until now, the Dennstein family were completely unaware of this situation and will challenge the will. Therese represents Fritz in court and Paula Dennstein, daughter of the deceased Count, the Dennstein family. While both of them starting to fi ght each other with all tricks in court, the Countess Alexandra starts an intrigue behind the scenes. Therese uncovers some family secrets and the tide turns.
