Show Summary

A single-camera courtroom comedy that focuses on Nina, a dedicated, career-driven corporate attorney who has a very public nervous breakdown after getting passed up for an expected promotion, and finds herself working as a public defender. Her personal and professional worlds are turned upside down when she joins the ranks of the legal world's underdogs and very quickly realizes that the law isn't quite as fair as she once thought. Nina's new colleague is Phil, a tall, dark and handsome, if not a little scruffy, public defender and avid gambler.
