What People are Saying About This

Leonard Pitts Jr.

"John Temple's The Last Lawyer is a compulsively readable indictment of a fatally flawed system. It reads like first-class legal fiction, but it's far more compelling because it is, tragically, legal fact."--(Leonard Pitts, Jr., Pulitzer Prize-winning syndicated columnist for the Miami Herald and author of the novel, Before I Forget)
