Synopsis

The Guardian revolves around a hotshot, thirty-something lawyer who, after being arrested for using drugs, must perform community service or risk being disbarred.

While closing lucrative deals at his high-powered law firm, Nick (Simon Baker) is forced to work for a legal services office run by Alvin Masterson (Alan Rosenberg), a boss who is determined to keep Nick honest.

Although his father, Burton (Dabney Coleman), wavers between pride and concern over his son's work performance, Nick attempts to appease him and his high-paying clients while devoting his time to a place where he can help those truly in need.

Straddling two vastly different legal worlds, Nick is determined to maintain his fast-paced lifestyle as he tackles cases involving people caught up in difficult circumstances.
