Are you sure that you're not thinking of the (single) episode that opens
with Mason's client receiving a sentence of capital punishment and during
the course of which he finds the evidence that exonerates her?
As for why Burger never won a case -- I'm surprised that anyone even
vaguely familiar with the level of competence of the prosecutors in
L.A. would possibly wonder about that. Heck, they couldn't convict
the Menendez brothers, who more or less murdered their parents and then
threw themselves on the mercy of the court because they were orphans.
