Book Description

July 31 2007
People love to hate lawyers; they're perhaps the most distrusted among professionals. What's puzzling is that lawyers who commit crimes are often at the top of their profession-affluent, respected members of society who seem to have little reason for criminal behaviour. Philip Slayton spent 35 years as a lawyer. In Lawyers Gone Bad, he exposes the motivations and the stories of senior partners in influential Canadian firms who have illegally sustained expensive lifestyles, engaged in drug trafficking, been convicted of immigration fraud, laundered money, and been disbarred for having sex with clients. These are colourful, personal dramas that give insight into lawyers, legal practice, and how the law itself can fail or be twisted.
