Book Review: The Legal Profession: What Is Wrong and How to Fix It
What is wrong with the legal profession, according to Sheldon Krantz, a scholar and lawyer with long and diverse experience, is that it has lost “its moral compass” owing to greed and a focus on profit over public service. The results include shrinking opportunities, widespread dissatisfaction among lawyers, an “access to justice” crisis exacerbated by the profession’s stubborn unwillingness to give up its monopoly on provision of legal services, and law schools out of touch with the needs of the profession. Krantz communicates in the broad strokes of a politician, but he conveys a sense of urgency and lays out an inspiring plan to navigate the profession toward its noble calling.

Book Review: Survived by One: The Life and Mind of a Family Mass Murderer

As criminal defense lawyers, we often meet clients for the first time when they are at the lowest point of their lives. Many of them have been accused of heinous offenses; and in most cases, they are guilty. This leaves us wondering what caused them to commit the offense. We receive the pre-sentence investigation report, and it may mention the client’s drug use, the abuse endured, or the fact that the client was raised in a broken home. But it still doesn’t explain why. What caused our client to commit such a horrific offense

Book Review: An Officer and a Spy
Robert Harris has written a riveting historical novel about the infamous Dreyfus Affair that saw Captain Alfred Dreyfus falsely accused in 1894 of treason for sending French military secrets to the German Embassy. The discovery that someone was passing state secrets to Germany hit the French military brass hard. They had just lost a humiliating war in 1870-71 to Prussia. The war was essentially over within the first month with the Prussian capture of Napoleon III and his army well within French borders.

Book Review: A Lawyer’s Journey: The Morris Dees Story

 Morris Dees is a courageous legend who has not only combated hate and the murderous Ku Klux Klan, but who has shown us what it means to truly fulfill the oath of an attorney against the onslaught of verbal criticism that many of us receive daily and against the real threat of physical violence, retribution, and even death at the hands of the notorious hate group. While the Klan wore white sheets and hoods, Dees faced them head on, eyeball to eyeball. What is surprising is not only his successful work in dismantling the despicable group, but that he is still alive to tell the story. A Lawyer’s Journey reads like a John Grisham book except for the fact that it is more spellbinding than any fictional tale.
