Description: "We expect law to get to the bottom of things. But if you ask lawyers, 'Does law get to the bottom of things?' they'll laugh. Lawyers watch other lawyers steal, lawyers watch other lawyers lie all the time".

This exchange between lawyers in Lawyerland is true. Names have been changed, but as the author says, his book remains truthful rather than factual, filled with flagrant remarks and unsettling confessions of aberrant behavior and compromised morals.

In America's crime-obsessed, law-obsessed society, this series of brilliant, searing, probing dialogues delivers a seldom-seen side of the law -- the lawyers' perspectives. The conversations recounted in Lawyerland represent the whole spectrum of law -- criminal, medical malpractice, employee relations, corporate finance, real-estate -- and a range of ethnicities and genders. These lawyers are literate, articulate, and self-aware. They are masters of contradiction and rebuttal who have learned to navigate in an increasingly chaotic justice system.

Lawyerland is sure to engross lawyers and non-lawyers alike -- in fact, all who are fascinated by the complexities of our legal system.
