Once-successful patent attorney Harriet Korn is fired and decides to begin anew with her own practice. With the help of her happy-go-lucky secretary, Jenna, she sets up shop in an abandoned shoe store in a rough section of Cincinnati. Her first case is to defend Malcolm Davies, a troubled young man, facing his third drug offense. Meanwhile, up-and-coming attorney Adam Branch joins the firm, and defends a "private security officer" after he shoots a man who is attempting to rob a laundromat. Written by NBC Publicity

Gramma-gritty, smart and entertaining.
17 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a die hard Kathy Bates fan, I was apprehensive of her foray into T.V. land at first. I became thoroughly engrossed in the first 10 minutes. The production, writing, and acting are first-rate. Okay, it's not necessarily believable, but it IS entertaining. Best line, "They say it takes a village . . . it's time for the village to step up." Can't wait to see the next installment. Opening scenes were particularly fantastic and hard to believe. They didn't last long and served to frame the remainder of the pilot, however. Even more unbelievable was the interaction between "Harry" and the local mob-boss. Again, this is an introduction to a character I hope we'll see in each show ALONG with his defense attorney, "Harry's" new partner. The probably OCD DA character (Payton) is an instant and perfect foil to "Harry's" hopeful, endearing and successful defense tactics. Again, this works and I hope it catches on!
