Attorney Herbert L Maris (Macdonald Carey) is devoted to defending the unjustly accused in situations where no one else can or will help.
Lt. Jim Weston (John Doucette) is a tough no-nonsense policeman who sees the light in virtually every episode when Maris proves that the person Weston has decided is guilty, is actually an innocent party.
Casey (Olive Carey) is Maris’s middle-aged secretary who is always trying to match him up with a “nice young girl”.
Lock Up was based on the case history of the real-life Herbert L. Maris – a corporate attorney in Philadelphia who devoted his life to defending wrongly accused persons.
