A Tale of Two Lawyers is a novel that chronicles the professional and personal lives of two Chicago attorneys, Mel Foster and Jerry Sloan, as they follow divergent pathways, beginning as law school roommates and continuing through their colorful, contrasting legal careers. Love and marriages come and go in the progression of their lives, but one woman becomes of key importance in the final confrontation that ends their careers-successfully and happily for one and ignominiously for the other.
The author, Barry J. Freeman, a Chicago litigator for over 47 years (now retired), writes from his experience as a participant and observer, exposing the practice of law as it has changed from noble profession to a dog-eat-dog, money-grubbing business, driven by a widespread, flagrant, unethical lawyer/client conflict of interest-hourly billing.
