What's next a copycat calling himself Hamilton Burger?

Good Day Readers:
You've got to wonder about someone masquerading as a lawyer using the name Perry Mason. Perhaps even more so his clients. Wonder if he had a secretary named Della Street and a private investigator Paul Drake?

Houston's Perry Mason Gets Arrested - DA's office says he's not authorized to practice law

By BRIAN ROGERS Houston Chronicle

A Houston man named Perry Mason was arrested on Tuesday, accused of practicing law without a license, officials at the Harris County District Attorney’s office said.

Spokeswoman Donna Hawkins said the 43-year-old has been charged with barratry, a third-degree felony. She said no other details were immediately available.

According to Texas Bar records, no one with that name is eligible to practice law in Texas.

TV defense attorney Perry Mason, played by actor Raymond Burr, won the majority of his cases during the original 1957-65 television series.
