When lawyers were heroes
16 October 2007 | by (Studio City, CA) – See all my reviews

Reed Hadley plays a public defender helping the indigent, poor and abused. In this case it is a young man desperate for money who driving stolen cars to Mexico for his boss, the owner of a vehicle repair garage. After he is captured his younger brother wanders into the garage searching for him and the garage owner sends him to Mexico in a stolen car. Of course he is arrested. So, both are being held because they do not have family or friends to post bail. The older brother volunteers to work for the police if they drop charges against his younger brother. The big climax is Mr. Big and his goons beating the police informant. Fortunately, the cavalry comes to rescue as he lapses into unconsciousness. Mister Public Defender has saved another sucker from a life of crime.

This is low budget even by Hal Roach standards as obviously the studio was rapidly sinking. But, this series survived two seasons.
