That show is a highly stylized depiction of life as an attorney. First, I haven't see any attorneys with a wardrobe as fly as Traci Ellis Ross' wardrobe (I'd literally kill someone for her wardrobe..jokes). Second, I don't think anyone would keep a secretary as trifling as Mya around. Third, their interactions with the partners are quite comical. I do think the show is accurate with regard to the dating trials/tribulations that many professional sisters experience. And I do think the profession can make you as nutty and neurotic as Joan (Traci Ellis Ross). I do think that Joan's frustration with being an attorney can be accurate for some people. We have an attorney here who left the profession to start up a couple of coffee houses....much like she left to start a resturant. Some people get burned out on the rat race.
