The Defense Lawyer: The Barry Slotnick Story is the true story of the latest and most notorious media scandal in legal history. It's the inside story of how a media executive with vast power and no scruples could use his company to destroy a man without trial or due process. Outspoken, funny and fearless, he tells what it was like to be caught up in such an Orwellian nightmare.
'Stuart Slotnick' narrates the audiobook of Benjamin Wallace's book 'The Defense Lawyer: The Barry Slotnick Story'. He has a deep, resonant voice that captures the story perfectly.
The Defense Lawyer: The Barry Slotnick Story is a real-life narrative. The narrator is, of course, the protagonist in his own story. It actually starts with Stuart's life story in prison for crimes that he committed. He only has about six months left on his sentence when he gets out and decides to make amends with Meg, the daughter who was conceived during his imprisonment. This novel is actually an interesting read and I think everyone should give it a chance.
Barry Slotnick is a New York defense attorney, and he has been representing the wrong people in the wrong cases for his entire career. Sometimes more than one person: in fact, if you are at trial against someone with as much money to spend as Barry's clients, there is no limit to how many wrong people they can hire. It's possible they hire other lawyers along the way, or even write their own briefs to make sure they're on top of everything. When these practices inevitably backfire, Barry slots in and defends whatever unfortunate figure was left standing.
The first thing that comes to mind when reading the prologue is "This guy was an attorney?" The author's voice is a lot of fun and it makes the listener feel like they are part of the story.
The Defense Lawyer: The Barry Slotnick Story is a short story based on the author's time at his father's law firm and his experiences during the time of the Watergate scandal. The story is told in first person voice and incorporates many legal terms that readers might not be familiar with. It is a gripping, fast-paced, interesting work of fiction.
