Best law drama since law and order

This show is absolutely brilliant, by far the best law type tv show since law and order hit the scene in 1990. This is a perfect show for all families to watch because it gives younger kids the insight into what can happen to law breakers while also keeping it instilled into their minds that there are still people who genuinely show others compassion(as Pete and Nick do to their clients here) and work as hard as they possibly can to help others. It's also a great depiction of the courtroom and how our justice system works. I pray every night that this show doesn't get taken off the air until every bit of greatness is squeezed out of this. Also nick and Pete together remind of young Jake briggains(Carl lee halee's lawyer from A Time To Kill) very brilliant and snappy lawyers. Excellent, excellent tv show.
