Storyline

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 Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

Jaw jaw, and law law.
23 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

I remember this series very well.

Goofy teethed Ron Liebman starred as a convict who while in prison, for what I don't remember, studies law. When he is released he becomes a fully fledged legal-eagle, and sets about championing the causes of the down at heel. All very very believable stuff indeed. It was almost like a naughty version of Petrocelli, but without the unfinished house. It is especially memorable to me because of it's intro sequence, which featured animated still photos, which seemed to be the in thing with title sequences back in the '70s; ie, Baretta, Police Woman etc.
