Lawyer son defends her mother in court

Date: 90s or older.
Country of origin: Could be French, but don't really know (Hungarian dubbing).

It's about the relationship between a mother and her son.
At the beginning of the movie the mother is deemed unfit by the state to raise her child (I think she's a petty criminal, she's caught stealing a coat or something).
The boy is given into the care of foster parents where he proves to be a very diligent student, he studies day and night and becomes a lawyer.
One day he recognizes her mother in court in the person he has to defend.
She doesn't recognize him.
The title could be the name of the son.
It's not Madame X (1966) or (1981).
