The Litigators by John Grisham

The LitigatorsThe Litigators by John Grisham
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I always enjoy John Grisham stories. A simple plot; regular people; no complicated list of characters. David is a lawyer in a big, important law firm. He is buried is the paperwork of high finance, never been in court, is just plain tired of working 15 hour days and never having a life. He hardly ever is able to enjoy the company of his wife and just falls into bed dead tired every night. He is on the fast track in his company, however, he is fed up. One morning he just decides to chuck it. He jumps back on the elevator and heads back down and out. Not knowing where to go, he flounders until he finds a bar, where he sits for the rest of the day drinking. He is so drunk, the bar tender somehow gets him into a cab and sends him on his way. He has looked up the name of a law firm called Findley and Figg and directs the driver to take him there, where he makes a drunken entrance, announcing to the partners and secretary that he loves this place and wants to work here. This law office is basically a firm of ambulance chasers.

Very enjoyable read.
