Season 3 follows Jimmy's descent towards Breaking Bad’s Saul Goodman — Albuquerque’s most notorious criminal lawyer. Six years before he meets Walter White, Jimmy McGill is a scrappy and indefatigable attorney struggling to maintain his law practice and make ends meet. He may not have a degree from an Ivy League university, but Jimmy’s quick wit, buoyant optimism and sometimes-flamboyant approach make him a forceful advocate for his often down-market clients. Jimmy’s a highly competent lawyer, but his moral compass and his ambition are at war with each other, compromising his professional future and his romance with fellow attorney Kim Wexler.
