Ben Matlock, the folksy defense attorney played by Andy Griffith in this long-running legal drama, is amiably sly and almost always successful in saving people from being convicted of crimes -- often murders -- they didn't commit. Working out of his Atlanta office, Ben employs an evolving cast of associates -- including his daughter Charlene (Linda Purl) and private investigator Tyler Hudson (Kene Holliday) -- to find justice for his clients.
