Neal, who played ADA Casey Novak for five years, will reprise her role for one episode this spring. The 35-year-old actress left the show in May 2008 when her character was disbarred for violating due process during a rape case.

Neal most recently appeared on NCIS and White Collar. The news was first reported by TVLine.com.
