The Storefront Lawyers.....gone but not forgotten
28 July 2005 | by saturngoddess1230See all my reviews

i guess i'm the only old TV junkie who remembers this show. "The Storefront Lawyers" was a 70s inspired launching pad for law shows to come in the 80s, like "LA Law", "The Practice" and of course my favorite of the "law" shows, "Law & Order." The opening theme music was kinda hip and catchy and performed by The Ventures. all in all, though this show had a short life, nonetheless it goes down in the book of 70s shows, including "The Mod Squad". FYI: Robert Foxworth has made numerous guest appearances on the "Law and Order" shows ;-)

Of course i still remember Perry Mason, but growing up in the 60s &70s, "The Mod Squad" , "The Storefront Lawyers" "The Name of the Game" and "Judd for the Defense" are long forgotten shows that should be a part of oldies TV stations. perhaps one day they will....
