      Fallen: Confessions of a Disbarred Lawyer
      A new eBook from Lost Light Books.
      http://www.fallenlawyer.com


      Did you ever see the Abel Ferrara movie
      "Bad Lieutenant," with Harvey Keitel?
      It's about a NY cop on the edge of annihilating
      himself, whose behavior and character
      have so deteriorated that it is unclear that
      redemption is even possible.

      One might well call this book, which purports
      to be an anonymous memoir, "Bad Attorney."
      Only it's not fiction, and at the end of the book
      no gesture of redemption seems forthcoming.

      But it's a mesmerizing read. The author begins
      his tale by describing a single lawsuit over a
      fall from a horse in which he was never able
      to bring himself to file the papers necessary
      to go to court. He goes on from there to
      recount in affecting detail his grossly incom-
      petent law practice, his systematic deceit of
      clients, the day-trading habit that he embezzled
      money from clients in order to support, and
      his eventual disbarment.
