A Perry Mason for a harder, tougher world, Oakland defense attorney LEO MAXWELL is more than willing to take matters into his own hands, if that's what it takes. You might say he has a few issues, but that's understandable.
When he and his older brother Teddy were kids, their father was sent away for killing their mother. In the aftermath, Leo was raised by Teddy, who eventually became one of the Bay Area's most successful (and notorious) defense attorneys. But when Teddy is shot in the head in Bear is Broken (2013), his Shamus-winning debut, Leo has to step up.
So now the rookie lawyer's working at Teddy's law firm, now run by his sister-in-law, learning the ropes and definitely favoring a hands-on approach when it comes to investigative work.
