Alan Parker was a widower with two children, Randy and Ann, who later married a younger woman named Katherine in the strip. Initially a dashing figure who solved crimes and chased criminals, in the 1960s he became an upstanding and serious judge who didn't stray as much from his courtroom. Instead, the spotlight began to focus on handsome young attorney Sam Driver, and Parker was almost entirely phased out of his own strip. Most stories revolve around Driver, his wealthy client and lover Abby Spencer, and her two adopted children, Neddy and Sophie.
Dr. Dallis, a psychiatrist who also created the comic strips Rex Morgan, M.D. and Apartment 3-G, used the pen name "Paul Nichols" writing the strip. Shortly before his death, he retired, turning over the writing chores to his assistant Woody Wilson in 1990. The strip's first artist was Dan Heilman, who left in 1965 and was replaced by Harold LeDoux . Wilson and LeDoux continue to collaborate on the strip today.
