Set in the fictional Southwestern town of San Remo,
Petrocelli was not quite a typical legal series. Harvard-
educated Tony Petrocelli had decided to practice law in
a part of the country that was not always receptive to
big-city, Eastern ways. He and his wife moved to the
Southwest, set up housekeeping in a camper, and opened
up his law practice in the middle of wide-open cattle
country. Tony hired Pete Ritter, a local cowboy, as
his investigator. Tony's propensity for taking on cases
whether or not his clients could really afford his
services often made it rather hard for him and his wife
to make ends meet. Lt. Ponce of the local police, a
good friend of Tony's despite the fact that they found
themselves in adversary positions in the courtroom,
was often involved in investigating the cases Tony
was working on. An interesting technique used in this
series was showing the actual crime in flashbacks from
the perspective of various people involved. The flash-
backs, naturally, differed depending on whose
recollections were being shown.

Barry Newman created the role of Petrocelli in a 1970
movie called The Lawyer, which was loosely based
on the Sam Sheppard murder case.
