He was the best person you would know in the city of Atlanta,Georgia, his Ben Matlock the lawyer that saves lives. This begins for him when he was in his late teens and was in law school and was even helping with father who was a detective. After finishing law school Ben felt it was his time to help solve cases for the Atlanta Police. Things started off slow for him but as Ben got more involved with solving crimes he needs help so first its his daughter Michelle Thomas, then Conrad McMasters, and also a secretary that helps keep Ben stay on top of his piling work in everyday life plus his cases which he solves. After many years of solving cases Ben falls in love with the D.A and they start being friends sometimes is hard when you sit across from each other in a courtroom and he's defending his clients. He also becomes friends with his neighbor who doesn't always make life easy for him but eventually he hires the neighbor's son to help solve cases with him. This show was a real great when comparing Andy Griffin and Perry Mason solving different crimes and saving lives. I rate Matlock a 10. This T.V series was real great and still shows on T.V today.
