Current and Past Occupation
Livia came to Pine Valley with her teenage son, Terrence, and quickly became a successful criminal attorney. Her brother, Derek Frye worked for the Pine Valley Police Department, and helped her arrest and convict the racists who brutally beat her son. Terrence recovered, and Livia defied racial constraints by becoming involved with the owner of the local health club, Tom Cudahy, and later marrying him. After they adopted a young runaway, Jamal Wilson, the family moved away from Pine Valley.
Returning to Pine Valley to defend Kendall Hart in the Michael Cambias murder trial, Livia moved her family back to town. Kendall was exonerated of the charges when her sister, Bianca recalled the events of the night she had blacked out - killing Michael Cambias for raping her.
Livia's most recent legal engagement was defending Zach Slater and Dixie Martin in the murder of Greg Madden. Although the prosecution felt they had an iron-clad case, Tad Martin's fabricated story cast enough doubt on their guilt for the jury to find them innocent. Livia won, but with a little help from a friend.
Livia continues to practice law in Pine Valley.
