Hardback. 1st US edn. The author draws in-depth portraits of American lawyers from different branches of the law, showing that the law can be a daring and adventurous profession for people with courage, brains and determination to defy stereotypes and go their independent ways. Contents include a detailed account of the life and battles of consumer advocate Ralph Nader, as well as a somewhat startling picture of what legal life is like in Alaska, where attorneys fly private planes to remote parts of the state. Also features Edward M. Swartz, also known as Fast Eddie, from Massachusetts, representing ordinary men and women injured by products of big business; Ron Meshbesher in Minneapolis defending clients accused of committing heinous crimes. In New York 3 young prosecutors (Childers, Chertoff and Savarese) go after the bosses of the Mafia, marking the first time the Mob was charged with being an ongoing criminal conspiracy. From Albuquerque, New Mexico, there is Bill Parnall, a juvenile defence lawyer who dreams of becoming a country-and-western music star. A group of fascinating people. Illus., Sources, Index. 336pp. lge. 8vo. h/back. Nr. F. in Vg+ protected dw. A fairly heavy book which may require additional postage if shipped overseas.
