Blain and Knapp is a prestigious San Francisco–based law firm that specialises in cases involving the rich and famous.
Cyrus Blain (Ralph Bellamy) is the featured senior partner, and former public defender Christine Cromwell (Jaclyn Smith) is the principal attorney.
Christine is beautiful and always elegantly dressed, with an appearance that suggests she is a fashion model or a woman of high social class. She grew up in a family of wealth, but that has not sidetracked her from doing what she wants to do – helping people who are in trouble.
Shrewd and cunning, Christine will stop at nothing until she achieves her goal.
Stories follow Christine as she attempts to live in two separate worlds – the world of high society with her mother, Samantha (Celeste Holm) and six stepfathers, and the not-so-glamorous world inhabited by criminals.
Sarah Van Allen (Rebecca Cross) is Christine’s secretary. Nanny (Ellen Albertini) is her housekeeper.
