Episode Summary

Luz H
Before: Luz is a Harvard graduate turned lawyer who gave up a six-figure salary to represent low-income residents of Compton. Unfortunately, trying to make a difference in the lives of others has come at a hefty price. Luz lacks the funds necessary to give her office the professional touch it needs. While Luz is confident in her abilities as a lawyer, she wants her office to reflect her talent and make her clientele feel as though they've come to the right place. Now it's The Gal Pals' turn to take an inspirational role in this courtroom drama. Watch as they feed Luz's feminine side and help her network within the community she's dedicated to serve by throwing a neighborhood get-together in Luz's new second home — her law office. After: Luz calls ahead for the wine, cheese and canapés, but adds a personal touch with homemade cookies — or tries to, except that the dough is too stiff to work with. (Want to make them yourself? See our Tips & Recipes section for directions.) After applying a bit of elbow grease, the cookies are rolled, cut and ready for the oven. While they bake, Luz heads to the bathroom for a facial scrub and mask. She makes a few wardrobe edits (pointed shoes, no jacket) and applies her makeup to good effect, even if it's not exactly in the manner prescribed. As the cookies come out of the oven, best friend David arrives. She gives him the grand tour, but it's Luz he can't take his eyes off of. "You look so different," he says, with a big grin. They head to her office, where they meet the caterer with her order. The food looks scrumptious, but the gaudy tablecloth doesn't quite live up to Damon's fabulous design. Her parents are the first guests to arrive. Both are enormously proud; her mother tears up at the site of her stunning daughter in her stylish new office. More guest file in — family friends, other lawyers, important members of the community; one friend, Michael, traveled all the way from New York to see Luz, and may be interested in getting to know her a lot better. When all arrive, Luz speaks from her heart: "The part that I'm most excited about is to be able to be in this community...hopefully, this is the beginning of a lot of other people that want to come back to communities in need." The President of the Compton Chamber of Commerce presents her with a plaque welcoming her, promising to recommend her services to area business. "I may be your client very soon."moreless
