Law & Order defense attorney Danielle Melnick is moving up the ranks in the Windy City.

Tovah Feldshuh will reprise her L&O role on Chicago Justice, where the character is now a judge, TVLine has learned exclusively.

During the final hour of an upcoming three-way crossover with Chicago Fire and Chicago P.D., Judge Melnick will preside over a case involving a suspected arsonist responsible for multiple murders. Arguing the sides in her courtroom are assistant state’s attorney Peter Stone (Philip Winchester) and defense lawyer Albert Forest (guest star Bradley Whitford).

Law & Order Tovah FeldshuhFeldshuh appeared in 13 episodes of Law & Order between 1991 and 2007, during which her character sometimes served as a foil for Ben Stone (Michael Moriarty), the father of Justice lead Peter Stone. She also portrayed Melnick during a 2011 installment of Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

Feldshuh’s recent TV credits include Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, The Walking Dead and Flesh and Bone.

The special #OneChicago event kicks off Wednesday, March 1 at 8/7c on NBC with Fire, followed by P.D. at 9 pm and Justice at 10 pm. The newest Windy City-set offshoot then moves to its regular Sundays-at-9 pm timeslot on March 5.

    This sounds way more complicated than it needs to be.

      Why is it complicated? They’re using people from the original Law & Order as their original characters. It’s pretty easy.

    Love her , she is a great actress . Pulls you in to her character and makes you feel her passion for the job that she does.

    Love the continuity. Now bring back Diane Neal and Stephanie March!

    Doesn’t S. Epatha Merkeson appear in the “Chicago Universe” as a different character than she played on L&O? I know Chicago Justice is not Chicago Med, but don’t they always have crossovers and take place in a shared universe? I’m confused.

    Love her character. Looking forward to seeing her again! 😃

    I love the #OneChicago concept (even though I don’t watch Fire or Med, not even during crossover events). I like seeing characters pop up on P.D., especially at the bar and at community events.

    I love Tovah & I always loved Danielle Melnick, especially when she interacted with Jack McCoy [Sam Waterston]. I’d love to see him pop up in Chicago, too!
