This show was a spin-off of a popular science fiction franchise, but was much less popular, itself, and was short-lived. The most prominent character was an artificial life-form, who was affiliated with a teenage girl. There was a cult in this show.

I encourage Roger to edit his OP to list the shows we’ve guessed.

Meanwhile:

An ex-con with unusual abilities returns home and attempts to rid his neighborhood of criminal elements.

Belying their hayseed demeanor, this title character from the American South is nonetheless a Harvard-educated defense attorney who will take the case if 1.) they think you're innocent and 2.) you have $100,000. Known for their distinctive fashion, they would often expose the real perpetrator of the crime in a climactic trial scene.

The only show I know of along those lines is Perry Mason. Never seen it though or know much about it beyond the name.

That's pretty close (they share a producer), but...

He delivers in a tractor-trailer, working as an independent.
The show was more comedic than serious.
There was (almost) always a pretty girl asking for help.

Pretty sure I have it as well - it's a series I've heard of, but never seen. So I thought I'd let someone who actually watched it get it.

Oooo, where is this legwork? I've thought about jumping in, but really didn't want to go through 14 pages of previous history so I didn't repeat something.

Er, nope. Good show, though.

A guest-star of this show was a co-star of a previous, tractor-trailer themed TV show.

I've updated it a couple times now, but the most recent list is on page 9 (you can't miss it).
