Victor Scott (Edward G. Robinson) is a District Attorney with a drive to win every case. He is assisted by attorney Ellen Miles (Nina Foch) who is not quite as relentless, but is devoted to her D.A. boss. Alluded to is a long relationship between Miles and Scott. In the past, Scott was encouraged and mentored by Ellen's father,and made a death-bed promise to the man to protect Ellen. There is a hint that the relationship between Ellen and Scott might have been a romantic one had Scott allowed it.
After Scott discovers that a man he sent to his death is innocent, he falls into an alcoholic haze, is arrested for drunk and disorderly conduct, and determines to defend another incarcerated man. This leads to a new career as a defense attorney.
Scott ends up defending an associate of the city's crime boss, Frank Garland (Albert Dekker), a man he refused to work for earlier due to the fact that "...no one would testify against you; you own the people who work for you." Though not in Garland's pocket, he establishes a careful relationship with the gangster, leading him into direct confrontation with the very office he used to head.
