List of Series

As a famous proverb says “There is no fence against ill fortune”. Indeed, no one is secured against a jail even if one is not guilty. Neither money nor public opinion or power will help. At that very moment a lawyer, his eloquent speech and knowledge of the law become the last hope. The lawyer’s office under the supervision of Streltsov Trofim Petrovich is in the focus of our story. But it’s not an ordinary lawyer’s office. It is unique because Petrovich and his assistant Egor not only protect people but also carry out their own investigations. From the very beginning Petrovich informs all his clients that first of all he serves the law. And if he finds out that the client is guilty, he won’t protect him and submit all the evidences to the investigation. It’s cruel but honest. No matter he risks to lose his attorney’s license, justice comes first for Petrovich. In each episode Petrovich and Egor face a personal drama, meanness and hypocrisy. But Petrovich’s professional intuition and skills help him “separate the sheep from the goats”. In addition to on-the-spot investigations full of pursuits and skirmishes with the participation of Petrovich and Egor, the audience will see the culmination and outcome of each story in the courtroom when in the course of judicial proceedings even in the most irresolvable situations Petrovich reveals the real criminals who have skillfully concealed the traces of their crimes.
