Family Law follows suspended personal injury lawyer and recovering alcoholic Abigail ‘Abby’ Bianchi (Jewel Staite) who finds herself struggling to put her career and family back together after hitting rock bottom. As a condition of her probation, Abby is forced to work at her estranged father’s (Victor Garber) firm, Svensson and Associates, and practice in family law for the first time while forging new relationships with the half-brother (Zach Smadu) and half-sister (Genelle Williams) whom she’s never met. The result is a dysfunctional family law firm operating to help other families with their own dysfunctions. Set in and shot in Vancouver, Susin Nielsen created the series and serves as showrunner. This Family Law series should not be confused with the series of the same name created by Paul Haggis that ran from 1999 to 2002.
