The result is "Legal Briefs, " a smorgasbord of stories boasting a wonderful variety of themes and styles. This one-of-a-kind audio collection f ...more

I initially picked up this book to read the Phillip Margolin title, The Jailhouse Lawyer. However, when I saw the other authors who had contributed to this anthology, I decided to read the entire book.
These are short stories about lawyers, written by lawyers, and enjoyed by anyone who picks up the book. If you are looking for quick reads, these short stories are for you. They manage to fill the need for a quick thriller-fix without taking too much time to get through.
I enjoyed each story in thi

"You want to know something funny? I discovered the law again. You actually made me think about it. I managed to go through three years of law school without doing that." --Mitch McDeere, 'The Firm'

Mysteries are my favorite genre of books and for some reason I really like the legal process as well. John Grisham remains one of my absolutely favorite and since he's an author in this book I was drawn to it. I was disappointed that John's story was the shortest one in this book but the rest of the authors are worth the read nevertheless.

Great collection of stories-I really liked that John Grisham's story was such a departure for him. I bought it at Wordsworth Books in Little Rock soon after it came out and Grif Stockley autographed my copy. His story, "The Divorce" remains my favorite, followed closely by "What We're Here For."

I love my job!

William loves his job and it shows in his writing. Library Journal has called him the "master of the courtroom drama;" his books have sold more than ten million copies worldwide. The Vancouver Sun dubbed him "the American equivalent of P.G. Wodehouse and John Mortimer." His novel Dark Eye was a psychological thriller that, in the words of bestselling author Lisa Scottoline, "will chi
