Great Lawyer TV Shows
3 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My mother was an attorney, and when I was growing up we always watched "Harrigan and Son" and "The Defenders", two of the better-written TV shows of the 1960s.

It was the first time I heard the phrase "Non Compos Mentis", (which was an episode title) and prompted a talk with my mother that I still remember 45 years later.

Helen Kleeb, who played Miss Claridge was later a regular on "The Waltons".

At the end of the show, the regulars would sit around a table in a bar and sing the old Irish tune about Harrigan; "H, A, double-R, I, G-A-N spells Harrigan"
