Description

A mother in New York sneaks her young daughter out of a research hospital. A billionaire philanthropist in Texas fights to save his dying son at all costs. A young traffic-ticket lawyer in Austin named Andy Prescott runs his legal empire out of a tiny office above a tattoo parlor and dreams of being a rich lawyer. Five lives on separate paths—until Andy defends the billionaire's secretary against a speeding ticket. Their lives become fatefully intertwined, destined to intersect—in death. And Andy Prescott learns that a client can be too rich for his lawyer’s own good.

Editorial Reviews:

"The Common Lawyer is about an overpowering need to right a shocking wrong, and it contains violence, romance and some heart-warmingly managed ethical dilemmas . . . The pace is perfect; the style clean and transparent; the emotional manipulation, effective; and you can see the film from here. It will entertain many people." 
- Times Literary Supplement (UK)

"Mark Gimenez writes colloquially smart dialogue but plots like an old master." 
- The Australian 

"The Common Lawyer is an addictive, compulsive read. With an interesting, flawed protagonist who matures as the novel progresses, a cast of well-drawn and diverse characters, and a great plot (not to mention the unexpected twist at the end), this is a must-read novel. Highly recommended, The Common Lawyer will keep you reading into the night."

    Waaaaay to much superfluous detail... Really could do without the turn by turn street directions and the travel tour guide... This book comes close to being an Austin tour guide wrapped around a mildly interesting plot. But, having said that, it was enough to hold my interest... Certainly worth the price. I might even try one more by this author.
  • A great read

    Captivating story. Characters are well developed and the story is perfectly paced!
