When Zoe Tate is in legal trouble for nearly killing Scott Windsor, she assumes longtime family lawyer and friend Rachel Whatmore will represent her, but Rachel is out of the country. Neil DePaul is sent in her place. Neil does his best to defend Zoe, and his furious questioning of Scott Windsor during the trial leads Scott to admit he had planned to rape Zoe, which invalidated his previous story and helped lead to a dismissal of charges against Zoe.
