Courtroom Crusaders

Mark Litwak, Author William Morrow & Company $19.95 (0p) ISBN 978-0-688-07486-9
Noting that without free legal assistance for the poor equal justice is a myth, attorney Litwak ( Reel Power ) here celebrates dedicated, idealistic lawyers who defend the disadvantaged. Among them is a New Mexico champion of victims of child abuse and neglect and a female Harvard law school graduate who runs a legal clinic for Los Angeles skid-row squatters. Also vividly portrayed are criminal attorneys who defend guilty clients without compromising their own ethical standards. Litwak salutes especially consumer rights and public interest advocate Ralph Nader and his associates and former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Rudolph Giuliani. These courtroom crusaders, we're told, are ``the real thing,'' and as presented here few will quibble with the contention. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)
