Plot Synopsis

This reality series follows two Staten Island mediators, Elura Nanos and Michele Sileo, as these housewives and former prosecutors tell it like it is to their families and clients. Elura and Michele met each other at New York Law School, where they became best friends and study partners. After graduation, they both worked for New York City's Administration of Children's Services -- Michele fought for child support, while Elura worked as a trial lawyer in the child abuse and neglect division -- before taking jobs in different NYC firms. Michele represented hospitals and doctors for New York's largest medical malpractice law firm, and Elura practiced commercial litigation and family law for a large corporate law firm. The two women reunited a decade ago when they formed their own company, Lawyer Up, a full-spectrum educational company for law students and professionals, where they work together to bring law to the masses. In each 30-minute episode of this series, Elura and Michele mediate one dispute, including those involving: an engaged couple seeking help over a pre-nup that threatens to end their marriage -- before it even begins; a barbershop owner, whose dispute with his top barber reaches a stalemate, threatening to ruin the business; a landlord and tenant -- and former close friends -- who are threatening to take one another to court over a security deposit; an overbearing Staten Island mother, who threatens to evict her disrespectful daughter; and more clients.
