For decades, Arthur L. Liman represented the very best of his profession. In this absorbing memoir, completed just before his death, Liman looks back on his spectacular career, his greatest cases, and the way the legal profession changed for better and worse -- over the last half of the 20th century. Liman represented an awseome array of high-powered clients, acted as an adviser to governors and mayors, counselor to secretaries of state and United States Senators, and he never ignored the call to public service nor forgot the obligation to help those who need it most, whether that meant leading the investigation into the Attica prison uprising or serving as chief counsel at the controversial Iran-Contra hearings. In Lawyer, Liman discloses what went on behind the scenes with lively portraits of the moguls, financiers, politicians, and criminals with whom he worked. Lawyer is a provocative look at the role of the lawyer in our society and the summation of a wonderful career. Book jacket.
