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 »
You are not the only one who remembers "Storefront Lawyers" aka "Men At Law". I was in the eighth grade in 1970; I wrote out the music for the "Men At Law" theme song with help from my band director and had tried many times to record the original theme song but my cassette player always messed up. I have found the theme song online and finally have a decent copy.
Storefront/Men At Law inspired me to read law books and become knowledgeable about the legal process, which came in handy the next year when my dad left and a divorce/custody battle ensued. I represented my brother, sister, and myself before a juvenile court judge where we became wards of the state.
I wish I had become an attorney; instead I went into electronics where there are no high-paying jobs as everything is throw away today.
