9780615386836: Lust for Justice - The Radical Life & Law of J. Tony Serra

The greatest counter-culture lawyer of his time. His trials have garnered him acclaim as one of the greatest criminal defense lawyers of the century. He's the white tornado in court, a semantic samurai, a shaman, a bard, a hero to some, a trickster to others, and always a force to be reckoned with, respected by all. This is a no-holds barred examination of the man, his renegade lifestyle, his resolute beliefs, and the legal system he serves and transforms. Filled with murder, drugs, and death-penalty cases, snitches, the psychological elements of crime, the nullification of and nexus with juries, closing arguments, and more, Lust for Justice pulls the black robe off the justice system to reveal what it is: a railroad to prison for minorities. In Lust for Justice, you view the law through the eyes of one of its greatest practitioners - and you'll never look at it the same way again.

Review:

"This book, Lust for Justice -The Radical Life & Law of J. Tony Serra, is the story of his life. I am glad there are a few (and there are only a few) audacious miscreants such as he around. He gives meaning to the word courage. I remember Race Horse Haines, one of the great lawyers of our times, who said that when he faces a troublesome problem, he asks himself, "What would a real lawyer do here?" When I face a tyrant judge or an overpowering opponent, I ask, "What would Tony Serra do here?" But rarely do I have the courage to follow the answer. -Gerry Spence --Book Forward

"The art humanizes him. I came to like him as a result of the art. The art made it all make sense for me" -Ann Yeomans, Archetypal Therapist, Santa Fe, N.M. --pre-copy of the book
