Idealistic attorney Anton Adam makes headlines when he successfully beats high-profile legal eagle Granville Bentley in a murder case. Bentley asks Adam to become a partner in his law firm. But Adam's rising career takes a nosedive when he's framed by John Gilmurry, a prominent New York racketeer, and a sexy actress in a trumped-up breach-of-promise suit. The only constant in Adam's life is the loyalty and unrequited love of his secretary Olga.
