* 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.
