Lawyers and Thieves

Roy Grutman, Author, Norman R. Grutman, Author, Bill Thomas, With Simon & Schuster $19.45 (0p) ISBN 978-0-671-66960-7
MONEY is what plaintiffs and lawyers seek in bringing suits, according to this informative and appalling expose of the legal profession by freelance writer Thomas and trial attorney Grutman, who counts such celebrities as Jerry Falwell and Bob Guccione among his clients. Entertaining courtroom dramas which should delight sensational-trial buffs illustrate the authors' assertion of the questionable practices lawyers employ within an overloaded and often corrupt court system to defend for exorbitant fees individuals, unions, and corporate and government clients. To that end, contend the authors, law schools have become ``factories for the production of legal entrepreneurs.'' (June)
