A humorous peek into Baltimore's legal community, with a thread of mystery.

Six months into her new job, rookie attorney, Jessica Snow is still surprised and just to the right of mortified having cast her lot with Baltimore’s ambulance chasing legal crowd. Her elevated professional status has her wrangling with a local mob boss, duping a drug dealer and confronting phony clients. With her street-smart sidekick, Kari, at her side, she develops a remarkable proclivity for this line of work by wrapping up difficult cases and finding new business in unexpected places.

But her biggest challenge is something she didn’t sign up for—tracking down a killer. To do so, she traverses an ethically murky terrain and must decide how far she can go before she becomes just another lawyer joke.

Along the way, Jess builds a new kind of family for herself, her own tribe made up of friends, colleagues and clients. Some of whom may raise eyebrows at her mother’s dinner table.
