The misadventures of a San Francisco legal aid lawyer
22 April 2003 | by (Saco, Maine) – See all my reviews

Sara McKenna's a young lawyer just out of law school and without a job. So she takes a job at a legal aid clinic in San Francisco. Her boss is a down-and-out Southern belle turned booze hound, her coworkers include Dennis, a gay lawyer, and other wacky characters at her law office, and then there's her best friend, played by Mark Hudson of the '70s comedy team the Hudson Brothers, whose five-year-old son, Matthew Lawrence, is constantly trying to set them up. Why? His father's single, she's single, and he thinks she'd make a good wife for his father.
