Overview

Ethan Bernstein collected things: a house in Costa Rica, racehorses, paintings by Picasso and Monet, a house in the Bordeaux region in France. For ten years, he liked to "reward" himself after every case he'd won. He had built his wealth with a stunning Los Angeles law career. A celebrity in his own right who carefully maintained his mythology, he defended the ones who could pay for the best the legal profession had to offer...and pay they did for the Svengali who expertly swirled the truth into lies and the lies into truth. The media loved him while everyone else hated him... Ethan took pride in it.

On a perfect moonlit May evening in the City of Angels, Ethan and his newest reward -a five hundred and forty thousand dollar sports car - go airborne off Mulholland Drive, an event that a year later sets him on a path to defend James Nazareth, an out of work, and until recently, a homeless man arrested for vandalism and assault resulting from his protest inside Estate Trust and Savings Bank. Ethan reluctantly allows himself to become responsible for his new client in a bid to resume his lost stature as a celebrity lawyer.

But the case that Ethan assumes is a slam dunk to reignite his career, isn't what it seems. Now, he must defend someone who can't pay with only the law and his true skill. Ethan is forced to examine his choices and his relationship to a woman he divorced nineteen years ago, a woman he can't ever forget. The defense of James Nazareth will lead Ethan to a place that not even he could have ever imagined.

Meet the Author

CHOICES are made everyday. Some are black and white, but most are shades of gray because of the lies we tell ourselves to justify the choice. CHOICES is a fast-paced story of a high-powered L.A. lawyer whose horrific car accident leads him a year later to defend a seemingly ordinary man accused of assault and vandalism. As now a disgraced lawyer, Ethan Bernstein assembles his defense of James Nazareth, he begins to realize something is just not right with his affable client and that this case - his ticket back to fame and redemption - isn't what it appears to be. Adding to his problems is Ethan's law partners want him out of the firm, which won't be easy...and might even be dangerous for Ethan. The clock is ticking down on the Nazareth trial. In order to win, Ethan must face his own past, present and future choices including the woman he lost.
