Tony Petrocelli is an Italian-American Harvard-educated lawyer who gave up the big money and frenetic pace of major-metropolitan life to practice in a sleepy city in the American Southwest.... See full summary »
While brash Martin Kazinsky was serving a six-year prison sentence for stealing cars, he decided to go straight and study law. Upon his release, he received a law degree, passed the bar, and joined a prestigious law firm headed by wise senior partner Samuel Bennett. "Kaz" was a somewhat abrasive and often hot-headed lawyer, but no one knew more about defending an underdog than he, and Kaz often went way beyond the call of duty to keep his clients out of jail. Katie was a reporter whom Kaz often dated. Written by

This was a great series. Full marks ! Leibman is perfectly cast as the attorney with a temperament. Only one season was made, but I recall watching this on Dutch television in the 70s. Every episode stands out and Kaz is in fact a "pro deo" attorney who gets to defend people no one else want to do. O'Neal is great too as Kaz's associate and acts as Kaz's sidekick. A lot of lawyer series were made: Perry Mason, The Defenders, Petrocelli and others, but this one has an edge. The lead character is charismatic. This superb series needs to be released on DVD ! If you can catch it in a re-run, don't miss it ! They don't make 'm like that anymore... for god's sake release it on DVD.
