A politician's corruption and sex scandal lands him in jail, leaving his wife to pick up the pieces and re-enter the workforce by joining a Chicago law firm as a junior associate in order to take responsibility for the family.
Julianna Luisa Margulies (born June 8, 1966) is an American actress and producer.
Born in Spring Valley ...
Alicia Florrick (née Cavanaugh) is the titular character of the show, and the wife of Peter, a disgraced State's Attorney; Alicia returns to work as a junior litigator at the law firm Stern, Lockhart & Gardner in part through her old law school friend Will Gardner, whom she has feelings for.
Having spent so many years as "the good wife", Alicia finds herself at the bottom of the career ladder, trying to juggle both home and professional life with the ongoing scandal surrounding her husband with whom she has two children, Zach and Grace.
Alicia is smart, independent, fiercely protective of her children, and much more than just a good wife. She excels at keeping a cool exterior. She is rarely ruffled and almost always thinks through what she is going to say, choosing her words for maximum impact or sting. Alicia graduated top of her class from Georgetown University Law Center over 15 years ago in the mid-1990s.
After graduation she worked at Crozier, Abrams & Abbott for about two years, but left due to her kids and her husband's career. Her maiden name is Cavanaugh and she has a younger brother, Owen, who is gay and the polar opposite of Alicia personality-wise, but they do love each other. Her mother's name is Veronica Loy.
In season 3, Alicia is a third-year associate at the firm. She and Peter are separated, and she has a sexual affair with Will but by mid-season she breaks it off. Alicia struggles with her feelings for Peter. She is deeply hurt and has not entirely forgiven him, but still loves him. Toward the end of season three, Peter announces his candidacy for governor of Illinois; Alicia stands at his side as he makes the announcement.
In season 4, Alicia gets and takes a promotion as an equity partner of the firm and begins planning to start a new firm with Cary.
