The MidLife Trailer -Pilot
Monica Jones is one of the top criminal defense lawyers in the city. She is not the best because she upholds her ethic oath to the Constitution, because frankly she cannot stand it. Monica is the best because her deeply rooted distain for the inequitable justice system runs 40 years long. She blames the legal system for her fatherless childhood. When she learned that her father’s murder was racial motivated and the justice system did nothing in his defense, she made a vow to avenge his death by any means necessary. That meant using deception, charm, and coercion to keep accused black men out of prison - guilty or not. Her impeccable acquittal rate makes her opponent earn their paycheck. That is until her former business partner, Denise McDaniel, dissolves their partnership and starts working for the District Attorney.
