"We deal in truth"
27 September 2016 | by (N Syracuse NY) – See all my reviews

Lawrence Preston is brought into a case by an old friend who is a civil attorney, (Alexander Scourby). A doctor, (Sam Jaffee, who began playing Dr. Zorba on Ben Casey this season), has had an elderly patient die after she created a will leaving him $100,000 as her long-time care-giver. Her excitable son, (Barry Morse, with a toupee), is certain the doctor killed her and Murray Hamilton, the latest in a long line of ADAs, is prosecuting the doctor for first degree murder.

Preston finds out his old friend Scourby has fallen for the doctor's nurse, whose husband won't divorce her unless she pays him $50,000 to do so. Scourby is also a long-time care-giver on the legal side and will also inherit $100,000. He also wrote into her will a late change requesting a quick cremation, (which would make an autopsy impossible)- and didn't tell her about it. Preston painfully and reluctantly brings this out in court with Scourby and his unknowing current wife in the gallery.

Afterwards, Lawrence regrets what his profession and his required loyalty to his client makes him do sometimes. Kenneth tells him "At least we deal in truth".
