The law firm of Preston & Preston was composed of a father
and son, two lawyers involved in a weekly courtroom drama.
Lawrence, the father, was a knowledgeable, seasoned
attorney with more than twenty years experience at the
bar. Kenneth, the son, was a recent law school graduate.
The learning process he went through as his father's
partner was a integral part of this series. During the
first season the firm's secretary, Helen Donaldson, and
Kenneth's girlfriend, Joan Miller, had featured roles.
The series was based on an original story by Reginald
Rose, which was telecast in 1957 as a two-part episode
of Studio One starring Ralph Bellamy and William Shatner
as the father and son attorneys, with Steve McQueen
as a young defendant accused of murder.
