Who are you ?
For the last few years I have been working in words as a book writer, humorist and commentarian. Soon I will let loose a comic novel involving lawyers and mobsters and a young woman who keeps them all jumping. I wrote most of the book while I was a writing Fellow at The MacDowell Colony. I’m looking forward to holding the new book in my hands but it’s the movie that I really want to see.
Since 1976 I have been a civil litigation lawyer, although I closed my firm’s office after my son Jeffrey became paralyzed in a swimming pool accident in 1998. For the last few years I have been working as “of counsel” with other lawyers in selected cases. Don’t ask me to tell you what “of counsel” means because the many thousands of us who are “of counsel” don’t know what it means either.
I currently divide my time between writing, practicing law, rebuilding a wheelchair and rebuilding a website. I also have a small sailboat, and often boast that I have never gone aground more than twice in one day.
Do you sell your books ?
We sell — at a tremendous discount — absolutely brand new copies of the hardbound edition of Rescuing Jeffrey to schools, medical professionals and legitimate organizations, for use as an educational tool or in charitable promotional activity. Use the CONTACT FORM to inquire about a purchase.
Why are there no adverts on your site ?
If one of my books wins the Nobel Prize or gets turned into a monster movie, there will be. Until then I want a quiet, welcoming website that I enjoy visiting myself.
Will there be life after death ?
Definitely yes. That opinion is free but a guarantee will cost you.
