24 In fact, the attitude of Americans towards lawyers was, and still is, ambivalent. Lawyers are often perceived as a necessary evil, and, like dentists, someone to avoid if possible. The public sees them as always looking for ways to turn arguments or discussions to their advantage, and suspects them of putting their material desires above moral considerations. Nevertheless, paradoxically, in the American imagination, history’s great lawyers appear as heroes. Like the main characters of other series, lawyers usually manage to win the hearts of the audience, even when they are ridiculous, incompetent or plain disagreeable.

On the other hand, and from a purely narrative point of view, the simplicity of the dilemma in a criminal case (guilty or innocent) and the theatricality of the criminal trial is an undeniable advantage, especially when screenwriters have less than an hour to present the characters, stage the crime, the indictment and the trial, and allow the lawyer-hero to solve the mystery, all the while allowing for commercial interruptions.
