Praise For…

"When I was a criminal defense lawyer I was asked 'The Question' so many times I got sick of it. It takes an essay to fully answer, and this book has fifteen brilliant ones. Some of the essays are laugh-out-loud funny, others deeply moving. Read them all and you'll understand why everyone - guilty or innocent, you or me - is entitled to a good lawyer." - John Grisham, author of The Runaway Jury

'How Can You Represent Those People? is a marvel of different and worthwhile insights that make this volume an important one to anyone with the slightest interest in criminal law.' - Marc Bookman, Director of the Atlantic Center for Capital Representation
