James "Bucky" Buchanan is a determined, personable, if not odd looking fellow who is well known in Vegas as a top legal eagle. Las Vegas Law follows him around as he deals with a variety of legal endeavors, and helps what happens in Vegas, STAY in Vegas.
"Bucky" Buchanan has defended murderers and prostitutes, but spends an awful lot of his time getting tourists who stretch the Vegas limits just a bit too far sometimes. In the first episode: Bucky goes to court for a woman struggling with a drug habit. He pleas for rehab rather than jail. Does she merit this effort? Also, a family friend has a considerable history of trouble with the law; how about fighting robbery and kidnapping charges?
One case invloves the defense of a man charged with forgery; in another, a woman deals with the aftermath of a prostitution charge.
