DOLLAR SIGNS: Texas Lady Lawyer vs Boots King
Attorney Merit Bridges represents a desperate client who takes a shortcut to justice and is charged with arson and murder. When Merit tries to set things right, she finds herself the target of a ruthless hired gun, Boots King, whose charge is simple: “Stop her.” With the help of her team – including Betty, a mothering office manager with a bad-ass attitude – Merit struggles to stay alive, navigate a labyrinth of legal issues, and prove once again that you don’t mess with a Texas lady lawyer.
MUSIC NOTES: Texas Lady Lawyer vs L.A. Baron
Attorney Merit Bridges finds herself in danger again in Music Notes: Texas Lady Lawyer vs L.A. Baron. When client Liam Nolan is slain with his own guitar, Davey Ray Bell shows up claiming to be the celebrity musician's illegitimate son. L.A. Baron, Nolan's former manager, makes a back-door music deal and tries to grab the estate for himself. When the probate court pushes Baron out of the picture, he goes after Merit with a vengeance. Using the dark web, he ruins her reputation, destroys her career, and finally attempts to kill her. Who will come out on top of the scales of music and the scales of justice?
