* TNT&G are: ** Ron Trott: He usually gives interviews to help making the client look innocent to the media. He's in a love-hate relationship with the hostess of "American Crime". As in, she loves the publicity from the cases he gets involved with and hates his attempts to use her show to make his clients look good. ** Tom Nicholson: The All-American face of "not guilty", Tom Nicholson is usually the one to go to court to argue the cases because he's more liked by juries than Ron. ** Alden Tuller: She recruits mock juries to test a defence's chances of success. Whenever she goes to court, she wears a ring out of a belief the jurors will take her more seriously if they think she's married. ** Luther Graves: Used to be a prosecutor before joining the law firm. Because of this, he has some idea of what to expect from the attorneys prosecuting the firm's clients. He's also a leader of the local African-American community.

* Cold Opening: Usually of a TV report on the case.
