The Firm Review: "Chapter Three"

"Chapter Three" continued in the same vein as the 2 hour series premiere, starting off with some high tension Mitch McDeere chasing during the present time before jumping backwards in time to focus on Mitch, his clients, and his first real steps as a partner and associated law practice with the unbeknownst to him, shady firm, Kinross & Clark.
