Added DiffLines:

* InsanityDefense: Played with in the second episode. Martina defends a severely schizophrenic young woman who took an insanity plea for murder, but now wants a retrial so she can go home from the mental hospital where she was locked up. [[spoiler:She's innocent and Martina successfully gets her acquitted.]]


Added DiffLines:

* TeacherStudentRomance: The prosecution theory in the pilot is that the accused, a college student, killed one of her professors in a crime of passion. [[spoiler:She had nothing to do with it: the purported affair never happened, the professor's death occurred in a BarBrawl and wasn't reported, and blood evidence implicating the student was a false positive from her hair bleach (which is TruthInTelevision: there's a number of substances besides blood that can make luminol fluoresce).]]

Unlike virtually every other TV show that Hollywood and the New York media currently have on the air, this show actually depicts New Jerseyans as regular people rather than "Jersey Shore"-style caricatures, and depicts New Jersey as a blue-collar, salt-of-the-earth place full of working-class people who are just as sympathetic as the usual New Yorker characters.

Martina navigates through cases with a combination of legal knowledge and blue collar knowledge gained from her upbringing.
