Author’s Inspiration: As a Legal Aid Attorney in the South Bronx in 1982, I handled the grittiest of cases. These cases didn’t just include the run-of-the-mill burglaries and robberies or drug deals at a time when miles of square blocks there were leveled to rubble and burnt out buildings seemed to be everywhere. There were much more horrible crimes there. And I was…… defender of all of it.
Then a case came through the system. Headlines. No prior arrest record. Horrible crime. He could be innocent.
This is why I became a lawyer- to champion for the innocent man.
And so life set me up for the greatest fall ever. Years later I couldn’t shake what I had done, so I wrote it down and it became “The Good Lawyer.”

From the Book: My hand slipped from the doorframe and I was pulled into the apartment.
For a second my right arm was free.
I pulled Sallie’s knife from its leather calf holster. The body on top of me, with the apparent instincts of a wrestler, reached for my free hand.
He gripped my wrist, but not before I cut deep into his leg.
A massive blow thundered down on my chest; his fist, in turn, smacked the side of my head.
Everything went dark. But I could hear. Hear my own death. Like prison doors slowly slamming shut in my head.
