Overview

County courthouses across the country have always been the arbitrators of disputes and conflicts that arise in the community. As a trial lawyer for nearly 40 years, Peter Langrock provides a unique perspective on how such events can change both a community and the practice of law in general. His view emerges from cases involving such well-known figures as Leo Durocher, Pearl Buck, and John Zaccaro as well as the stories of ordinary people whose names mean very little but whose stories hold universal appeal. Though the inspiration for Addison County Justice is a college and farming community in Vermont, these human stories illustrate just how important legal proceedings are to the history of a community.
