Patty Hewes is a ruthless defense attorney.

Played by Glenn Close, this character is a master manipulator who rarely stops at anything to get what she wants. Patty is the head of Hewes & Associates and is married with one son. Her husband is not the son's father, however, as viewers discovered during season two of the show.

Hewes and her partners - which include loyal sidekick Tom and untrusting Ellen - focus on major class action lawsuits brought against important companies/individuals.
