Sebastian Rudd is not your typical street lawyer. He works out of a customized bulletproof van, complete with Wi-Fi, a bar, a small fridge, fine leather chairs, a hidden gun compartment, and a heavily armed driver. He has no firm, no partners, no associates, and only one employee, his driver, who's also his bodyguard, law clerk, confidant, and golf caddy. He lives alone in a small but extremely safe penthouse apartment, and his primary piece of furniture is a vintage pool table. He drinks small-batch bourbon and carries a gun. Sebastian defends people other lawyers won't go near: a drug-addled, tattooed kid rumored to be in a satanic cult, who is accused of molesting and murdering two little girls; a vicious crime lord on death row; a homeowner arrested for shooting at a SWAT team that mistakenly invaded his house. Why these clients? Because he believes everyone is entitled to a fair trial, even if he, Sebastian, has to cheat to secure one.
Sebastian Rudd no es el típico abogado: lleva arma y su oficina es una camioneta a prueba de balas conducida por su guardaespaldas, que a su vez es su asistente legal y único amigo. Difiende a quienes otros no querrían ni ver: un drogadicto, un chico tautado que supuestamente forma parte de un culto satánico acusado de acosar y matar a dos niñas pequeñas, un criminal en el corredor de la muerte, un hombre arrestado por disparar a unos agentes de las fuerzas especiales al entrar por error en su casa ... ¿Por qué estos clientes? Porque cree que todo el mundo tiene derecho a un juicio justo, incluso aunque él tenga que hacer trampa para conseguirlo. Odia la injusticia, no le gustan las aseguradoras, los bancos o las grandes empresas, desconfia de cualquier persona que tenga que ver con el Gobierno y se ríe de las nociones del sistema judicial sobre comportamiento ético.
