Michael was in a hurry. He was scrambling up the ladder at Drake & Sweeney, a giant D.C. law firm with eight hundred lawyers. The money was good and getting better; a partnership was three years away. He was a rising star with no time to waste, no time to stop, no time to toss a few coins into the cups of panhandlers. No time for a conscience.
But a violent encounter with a homeless man stopped him cold. Michael survived; his assailant did not. Who was this man? Michael did some digging, and learned that he was a mentally ill veteran who'd been in and out of shelters for many years. Then Michael dug a little deeper, and found a dirty secret, and the secret involved Drake & Sweeney.
The fast track derailed; the ladder collapsed. Michael bolted the firm and took a top-secret file with him. He landed in the streets, an advocate for the homeless, a street lawyer.
And a thief.
The Street Lawyer
Amazing book!! Loved everything about it. Its a must read In my opinion.
Brilliant, well-researched, perfectly arranged, extremely emotional & touching. A stirring work that should move its readers to help All those around us & to refuse to put up with injustice & inequality anymore. Especially as these events become more common.
Definitely get the audio, but only if you've read this with your own eyes first.
