'Law And Order: SVU' Preview: Olivia's Family Experiences Some Trouble (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

When Olivia's half-brother Simon (guest star Michael Weston) is in town, you know things are going to get dramatic on "Law & Order: SVU" (Wed., Feb. 29, 10 p.m. EST on NBC). In "Child's Welfare," Detective Benson (Mariska Hargitay) calls on Bayard Ellis (returning guest star Andre Braugher) for legal help for Simon.

Child Services is threatening to take his children away and Benson asks Ellis to represent her brother. However, not everything goes as planned and the case spins out of control.

Meanwhile, after a homeless couple finds a newborn baby near a hospital, Detectives Fin (Ice-T) and Rollins (Kelli Giddish) make a shocking discovery.

In the exclusive clip above, see Braugher in action as Bayard Ellis defending Simon after his arrest for marijuana possession. Below, check out photos from the episode featuring Simon, Benson and Bayard in court.

"Law & Order: SVU" airs Wednesdays, 10 p.m. EST on NBC.
