Adam Sullivan is a promising young A.U.S.A. whose intelligence is bound with a gullible nature that presents an uphill battle in his pursuit of both career and romantic success. At work, he must argue cases against Susan Rakoff, a beautiful and savvy public defender who regards the A.U.S.A.s as enemies of the people. Adam is also challenged by his reluctant supervisor Geoffrey Laurence and a wide-eyed paralegal Wally, whose social ineptitude is matched only by his newfound devotion to Adam. Working alongside Adam as an Assistant U.S. Attorney is Ana Rivera, a former cop with the street experience to compensate for Adam's occasional naïveté. Also in Adam's life is his roommate Owen Harper, a trusted friend who reminds Adam of the lighter side of life outside the world of federal prosecution. Written by
