Being sent to the slammer was the best thing that could have happened to Martin "Kaz" Kazinsky. It was there that he studied criminal law, and he got his degree and passed the bar after his release. Now he is a defense attorney beyond comparison.
Ron Leibman stars as Martin "Kaz" Kazinsky, who passed his law examinations in prison, Leibman also writes and directs the series
He plays Kaz as a down-to-earth person, capable of making mistakes, of which there are plenty, as he stumbles around, learning the ropes as a junior partner in a prestigious law firm.
Patrick O'Neal plays Sam Bennett, the senior partner in a prestigious law firm in which Kaz yearns to work.
Kaz's style grates on the stuffy Bennett, but he admires his enthusiasm.
The saving grace of the show is Kaz's courtroom performance, which lacks polish because all his legal education has come from books and he has never been a lawyer in court before.
