* AssholeVictim: Many of the murder victims were blackmailers, thieves, murderers themselves or just [[{{Jerkass}} someone so irritating]] or otherwise evil that absolutely nobody would mind their being dead - and what's more many of the murders are in self-defense. This not only makes many of the murderers sympathetic for dramatic purposes, is also adds to the mystery: in an average Perry Mason story, nearly everyone has a motive. Oddly enough, any crimes that the victims do (including murder) are often not investigated by Tragg and Burger which means [[KarmaHoudini they would have likely gotten away with them]].

** Averted at least in the mind of William Talman (Hamilton Burger), who maintained that Burger never lost a case on screen, reasoning that to Burger sending an innocent man or woman to prison would constitute a loss.

* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Every novel's title started with the words "The Case of (the)...", as did every theatrical release, every episode of both TV series, and every TV movie. Often they had an alliterative subject: the Poison Pen, the Dangerous Doll, etc.
