Description: As a child, Catherine Crier was enchanted by film portrayals of crusading lawyers like Clarence Darrow and Atticus Finch. As a district attorney, private lawyer, and judge herself, she saw firsthand how the U.S. justice system worked -- and didn't. One of the most respected legal journalists and commentators today, she now confronts a profoundly unfair legal system that produces results and profits for the few -- and paralysis, frustration, and injustice for the many. The dire prediction of Alexis de Tocqueville in Democracy in America has come true: Americans have ceded their responsibility as citizens to resolve the problems of society by themselves to a lawyer-controlled authority -- and with it their precious democratic freedoms.The Case Against Lawyers is both an angry indictment and an eloquent plea for a return to common sense. It decries a system of laws so complex even the enforcers -- such as the IRS -- cannot understand them. It unmasks a litigation-crazed society where billion-dollar judgments mostly line the pockets of personal injury lawyers. It deplores the stupidity of a system of liability that leads to such result
