Plot Synopsis

SISTERS IN LAW is a one-hour reality series that follows a group of top black female attorneys as they tackle some of the toughest cases in Houston, Texas, as they seek justice for their clients. Although close-knit they often find themselves allies one moment and rivals the next. Ultimately, what keeps these women bonded is the common ground that they share -- their race, their gender, the ability to win cases and an intense passion for the law -- in a predominately white, male-dominated profession. This series takes an inside look at how this group of dedicated lawyers juggle demanding careers, their families, political aspirations and busy social calendars while trying to maintain their friendships. Rising from a childhood of poverty and a life filled with tragedy, Jolanda Jones was driven to practice law in order to provide warrior justice for poor defendants. With all of her career accomplishments aside the one thing Jolanda is most proud of is her son, Jiovanni, who like his mother is a social activist. Jio was recently arrested and is facing charges, but Jolanda believes he is a victim of racial profiling and is doing everything she can to clear his name. Vivian King retired from her banking career after nine years and decided to become a lawyer. At 30, she went to law school and three years later graduated cum laude from Thurgood Marshall School of Law. She is the second black female to become board certified in criminal law in Texas. As a criminal lawyer who is the only one of the group to defend capital murder death penalty cases, Vivian considers herself the matriarch of the sisters and over the years has taken many of the ladies under her wing and mentored them. Rhonda Wills is a civil attorney who specializes in class action lawsuits. While working at a previous law firm, she sued for sexual harassment and won a large settlement, which she used to open up her own successful civil litigation practice. A true dragon slayer, Rhonda has recovered more than $75 million fighting for the rights of everyday Americans against corporate giants and insurance companies. Juanita Jackson is a mixture of southern black culture -- her mother was a wealthy debutante and her father was militant Black Panther from the other side of the tracks. Juanita and Rhonda were partners in a firm for 7 years until they realized that business and friendship didn't mix and dissolved their partnership. Monique Sparks, a criminal attorney, was originally interested in becoming a lawyer for the money but grew to enjoy the profession and the way she was able to help people get out of tough situations. Like the other women in the group, she is passionate about her work and gives clients her undivided attention. Tiye Foley is a civil attorney, specializing in intellectual property, who works for a huge law firm in Texas. After graduating from the University Of Texas School Of Law she was offered a position as an Associate in a southern law firm. Tiye, who is new to the group, is married to a well-known attorney.
On Thursday, May 12, 2016 at 10pm ET/PT, WEtv premiered the season finale of SISTERS IN LAW. In the season ender, "Truth and Consequences," Jolanda's confronted with a sister intervention. Later, Rhonda's client makes a life-changing decision; Jolanda's client brings her to tears; and Monique asks the ladies for advice when she's tasked with her biggest case yet.
