- 25-episode action comedy.
- The idea of the story comes from a character from unofficial history--the Goosebumps Woman (疙瘩老娘), who may be Qing Dynasty's first female lawyer. As a female, she is not able to personally go to court, as she can only write the official form for filing a lawsuit. The storyline stretches to the two barristers Chen Mengji and Fang Tangjing, using cases from 20 years ago to link the storyline.
- Roger Kwok will play Zhang Siwei (章四維), a lawyer. He reads intensively. He is forthright but not flexible. To uphold justice, he writes the official form for filing a lawsuit. Because of the literary phrases and references in his writing, the county magistrate is afraid of his writing the most. Although he is full of righteousness, he is unwilling to lie. His frequent good intentions to help people become meddlesome. Afterward, under Kristal Tin's guidance, they uphold justice as a partnership. However, if it is to make money or to help bad people, he refuses to go to court. He will have a romantic storyline with Kristal.

She followed her father to live in seclusion in the country; however, because she was not able to use her skill, and was forced to marry by her father, she escaped. She used force to live at Roger's house, carrying through with special training for him and guiding him to become a lawyer. She has great pleading ability; unfortunately, as a female, she is not able to personally go to court, so she forces Roger to go to court for her. Because Roger gets overly nervous, he faints in court; whenever these circumstances occur, she takes over for him and becomes his spokesperson. The two use a female and male barrister format to fight Pan Jingquan together. She has an admiration for Evergreen.

Personal Note: Roger playing a lawyer again, but in ancient! His look reminds me of Wong He's Zheng Banqiao in "Doomed to Oblivion".
Priscilla's look is really bad! Her hair is similar to Yumiko Cheng's Chan Sai Mui in "The Gentle Crackdown II". o_O
