Sara McKenna (Geena Davis in her first starring role) is a bleeding-heart defence lawyer fresh out of law school who decides to work in a San Francisco legal aid clinic with three other lawyers, including her best friend Roz (Alfre Woodard).

Secretary Helen (Ronnie Claire Edwards) watches over the Bay Area Legal Group office – and especially Marty (Bill Maher) with his questionable ethics, always scheming to get out of something and using Sara as a ploy wherever he can.

Sara’s other colleague is Dennis Kemper (Bronson Pinchot), a laid-back preppy type who happens to be gay.

Newly single Stuart (Mark Hudson) and son Jesse (Matthew Lawrence) live across the hall from Sara.

NBC hyped Sara as a new Mary Tyler Moore Show, which it certainly wasn’t.
