You don't break up with me and you betray your friend.Neena forcing J.D. to have sex with her on the table in order to betray Christopher Turk.

Neena Broderick is the scariest lawyer in the entire city, and for good reasons.


Neena is a malpractice lawyer who is known to occasionally turn up at the hospital and cause problems where there are none. She has a very harsh, impersonal and even ball-busting approach to her job, making her one of the least liked people to enter the hospital. When she comes to visit her father, who is a patient in the hospital, she starts a relationship with J.D., which turns into a problem for J.D. when Neena tries to sue Turk for malpractice with Harvey Corman. ("My Malpractical Decision") As a sadistic insult to Turk and to assert her dominance over J.D., she has sex with J.D. on the table on which she issued the lawsuit to Turk, and forces him not to try to break up with her. They are caught by Turk and Carla. However, after J.D. has trouble finding the courage to break up with Neena, he gets Jordan — the scariest woman he knows — to break up for him, and Neena leaves the hospital. She tells Todd to get in her car for sex. ("My Female Trouble") She is either married or divorced, but what happens to her is unknown.

Personality Profile

Neena can sometimes be a cold-hearted ball buster, but she only does it because of her job as a lawyer. She is audacious, such as when she kissed J.D. to thank him for saving her father, to get to Dr. Cox, or both. In terms of sex and romance, she is poor at showing it healthily, as she is very domineering and sadistic, threatening J.D. that she will punish him if he tries to break up with her and maliciously intends on making him betraying his friend for her urges.
