Integrity Counts . . . in a Humorous Study of Lawyers on the Prowl
on November 9, 2011
"Better is the poor who walks in his integrity
Than one perverse in his ways, though he be rich." -- Proverbs 28:6 (NKJV)
John Grisham takes readers on a humorous tour of what street lawyers (aka "ambulance chasers") do. He wisely chooses three different characters with wildly different motives and talents to make cautionary points for anyone thinking of hiring a lawyer at little or no cost. I thought it was Mr. Grisham's funniest book by a wide margin. My wife (who isn't a lawyer) saw little humor in it . . . but liked the story anyway.
You'll also get a great inside look at what small-time lawyers think about on a daily basis.
For the public, the book's big shocker may be realizing how little experience most lawyers have in litigation.
As always, Mr. Grisham does offer hope through redemption.
