On this season of Working, we visit the city of Baltimore, to talk to people about their jobs there. We're hoping to learn about how the city informs their work, and how they are shaping Baltimore itself, by working.

Jenny Egan defends children in juvenile court, trying to keep them from getting locked up. She tells us about earning the trust of her clients, researching their cases, and the satisfaction of winning trials.

In a Slate Plus Extra, Egan tells us about how she first fell in love with Baltimore and decided to move to the city she now calls home.
