He gave up the money. He gave up the power. Now all he has left is the law.

Michael Brock is billing the hours, making the money, rushing relentlessly to the top of Drake & Sweeney, a giant DC law firm. One step away from partnership, Michael has it all. Then, in an instant, it all comes undone.

A homeless man takes nine lawyers hostage in the firm’s plush offices. When it is all over, the man’s blood is splattered on Michael’s face—and suddenly Michael is willing to do the unthinkable.

But there’s one break Michael can’t make—a secret that has floated up from the depths of Drake & Sweeney, from a confidential file that is now in Michael’s hands, and from a conspiracy that has already taken lives. Now Michael’s former partners are about to become his bitter enemies. Because to them, Michael Brock is the most dangerous man on the streets …

    " The book, The Street Lawyer, is about a man named Michael Brock who has changed from a lawyer close to partnership to a street lawyer helping the homeless. Michael found a file that can take down his old firm, Drake and Sweeney. The file contains information on the lives taken because of Drake and Sweeney. The firm would do anything to get it back. But Michael wouldn't return it, and instead will risk his life to jail to sue them. "

    " I liked the idea but the overall story was a little unrealistic. Not to mention that Michael was supposed to be thinking about the homeless but could only manage to keep telling us how great his triumph over corruption was. I think Grisham should not write from a First person perspective because of the lack of details that are present when he does so. He is much better when you see what the other characters are thinking. "
