The show that inspired me to become a lawyer
25 September 2002 | by (St. Albans,VT) – See all my reviews

One often hears from attorneys that the show "Perry Mason" inspired them to become a lawyer. You see, it was Clinton Judd, not Perry Mason, who inspired me to become a lawyer (damn him).

I found Clinton Judd more interesting because he had a bigger flair for the dramatic; and because he handled cases with some immediate political import. Clinton also traveled around the country where Perry was content to stay in one place, and when at home in Houston C.J. led a more posh lifestyle.

Clinton's efforts didn't always meet with unqualified success, a point with me as I knew even the best criminal defense attorney cannot run up the a-big-number-and-aught W-L record against some poor Mr. Burger.

I can recall one script wherein Judd's young associate, Ben Caldwell, drove to another state in the company of an attractive woman- and was charged under the Mann Act. Ben wound up having to testify in court that nothing sexual took place. That show is a reminder that in some ways, even the late '60s were highly conservative by today's standards.
