Overview

Young D.C. lawyer Bill Doberman, who fancies himself the James Bond of the Potomac. is a liar, a conniver, a phony, a hypocrite, and a cad - and those are his good points. But will they be enough to win him the much desired booby prize of partnership at Ashby & Cinders?

He will need all his skills to out-compete the dour Lowell Stellworth, languid yet fanatical master of the lengthy footnote, while also dodging hostile senior partners, posing as an arts connoisseur, and keeping his two girlfriends at the firm from finding out about each other. All this in the hope of qualifying at the end for even longer hours and a pay cut.

Daniel Shaviro used to practice in a law firm, like the characters in this book, but decided he would rather not work so hard for a living, and is now a Professor of Law at NYU Law School. Luckily, his law firm was nothing like the one depicted here.

He is the author of many books about public policy, but this is his first novel. He lives in New York with his wife, two sons, and three cats, and has a blog at http://danshaviro.blogspot.com.
