The whole season of Lincoln’s lawyer comes down to this question (and two more). Will defense attorney Mickey Haller be able to free his former client, Jesus Menendez? This was the case where Haller was working out before he entered rehab for being addicted to painkillers. Menendez was convicted of murdering a woman named Martha, a worker. Haller had a witness, nicknamed Glory Days. She was supposed to testify and Haller detained her in a hotel. The day she disappeared, and they never heard from her again.

The key will be to find Gloria. Mick locates a former client, a prostitute named Cherry, who heard she was hiding out in Las Vegas.

Lincoln’s lawyer season 1 – Does Mickey have the conviction of Jesus Menendez overturned?

Yes! Mickey locates Gloria and tricks her into seeing a wealthy John in Los Angeles. Mickey had the Elliott case, so Lorna is going to ask him to testify. She refuses but later returns to Mickey’s office. When she testifies, a man tries to kill her and tells her that he got away killing her friend, Martha. When they arrested Menendez, it wasn’t that man on TV. The man also had a tattoo on his forearm, a Japanese kanji inscription.

Gloria was threatened by a vice cop named Linda Perez. Otherwise, she would be arrested on a false drug charge and serve three years in prison. She left for fear of being imprisoned (a murderer was on the loose). Did Detective Perez take the initiative to get a promotion from his boss? Well, yeah, to get a promotion, Detective Lankford told him to. Why? Because she told him Menendez was guilty.
