Product Description & Reviews

May It Please the Court presents the story of one man's rise from a struggling sole practitioner to the senior partner of the largest suburban law firm in the United States. Although this book is an autobiography of attorney Leonard Rivkin, it is much more. Because of its wealth of information and insights into the life of an attorney, the book could have been titled: So You Want to Be a Lawyer? - since it goes into the real life practice of law as well as the pragmatic ups and downs of a law practice; or What Law Schools Don't Teach You - since it covers "getting" new clients, how to hold clients, the general marketing of a law office, solid tips on how to run a law office, and many other practical aspects that are rarely, if ever, covered in law school; or even Lawyers Behind Closed Doors - since it shows how legal strategies evolved in some of the most well-know cases of our generation. The reader goes behind the scenes into the conference room as well as the courtroom and get a look at defense tactics utilized in cases such as Agent Orange (then the largest mass tort case of its time); Franklin Nation Bank (then the country's largest bank failure); Asbestos, and many others. May It Please the Court is a great antidote to current media perceptions of lawyers (Ally McBeal, etc.) and a real-life balance to popular novelists such as John Grisham and Scott Thurow. Every young or would-be lawyer will benefit from reading this book, as will practicing attorneys. And with our society's fascination with legal matters, general audiences will find this a readable, engaging look at the legal world.
