Show Summary

Andy Griffith is back, playing widower Benjamin Leighton Matlock, a popular, folksy attorney who is worth all of his $100,000 per case fee. He has the knack of solving and winning most of his cases. In addition to proving his client's innocence, he usually unmasks the murderer at the end of each episode (similar to Perry Mason).
.
Ben wears his signature light gray suit and drives three generations of his Ford Crown Victoria. He owns his law firm, where he shares his cases with his partners - his associates, daughter Charlene and investigator Tyler Hudson. In Season 2, Charlene leaves and is replaced by Michelle Thomas, a young, attractive associate who had tried her hand at baseball after majoring in Physical Education. She met Ben on his trip to England. Feisty, redheaded A.D.A. Julie March, who left Nebraska to work for the D.A.'s office appears once in Season 1, intermittently in Season 2 and joins the cast full time for Seasons 3-6. Tyler Hudson leaves the cast at the start of Season 4 and is replaced by Conrad McMasters, a former sheriff's deputy Ben hires to be his investigator.
.
Michelle and Conrad both leave at the end Season 6 and are replaced by Ben's older daughter, Leanne MacIntyre, and recent law school graduate, Cliff Lewis, son of Ben's nemesis Billy Lewis. Investigator Jerri Stone joins the team for Season 9, replacing Leanne.
.
