David Hansen was a big-shot lawyer who grew tired of his important and expensive Los Angeles law firm. Hansen left his job to start a non-profit firm called Neighborhood Legal Services based in Century City, California. His associates were Deborah Sullivan and Gabriel Kay. Roberto was a law student who worked for them as a clerk. After 13 episodes, the show's format was changed, as Hansen, Sullivan and Kay went to work for Devlin McNeil at the firm which Hansen had quit in the first place. Written by

The theme song was written by Morton Stevens, who also wrote the theme for Hawaii 5-0. The Ventures had had a top 5 hit with the Hawaii 5-0 theme, but their version of the Storefront Lawyers, released as a single in late 1970, failed to become a hit. See more »
i guess i'm the only old TV junkie who remembers this show. "The Storefront Lawyers" was a 70s inspired launching pad for law shows to come in the 80s, like "LA Law", "The Practice" and of course my favorite of the "law" shows, "Law & Order." The opening theme music was kinda hip and catchy and performed by The Ventures. all in all, though this show had a short life, nonetheless it goes down in the book of 70s shows, including "The Mod Squad". FYI: Robert Foxworth has made numerous guest appearances on the "Law and Order" shows ;-)
Of course i still remember Perry Mason, but growing up in the 60s &70s, "The Mod Squad" , "The Storefront Lawyers" "The Name of the Game" and "Judd for the Defense" are long forgotten shows that should be a part of oldies TV stations. perhaps one day they will....
