Publisher's Summary

A Tale of Two Lawyers is a novel that chronicles the professional and personal lives of two Chicago attorneys - Mel Foster and Jerry Sloan - as they follow divergent pathways, beginning as law school roommates and continuing through their colorful, contrasting legal careers. 

Love and marriages come and go in the progression of their lives, but one woman becomes of key importance in the final confrontation that ends their careers - successfully and happily for one, and ignominiously for the other.

About the author: Barry J. Freeman has been a Chicago litigator for over 47 years (now retired). He writes from his experience as a participant and observer, exposing the practice of law as it has changed from noble profession to a dog-eat-dog, money-grubbing business, driven by a widespread, flagrant, unethical lawyer/client conflict of interest - hourly billing.

One of the best books I have listened to

The story held my attention at all times. I thought the plot was very interesting, and I enjoyed the narrator.

Of particular interest was the "true to life" description of Chicago and its "loop" district". Having lived in Chicago in the 50's and 60's, I recognized so many places and names that had dimmed in my memory.

Anyone familiar with Chicago during that era should find the story as pleasing as it was for me.

Hats off to the writer for a fine job, His attention to detail as well as his vivid imagintion molded a most interesting plot.

I will look forward to this author's future books

Like Watching Paint Dry - But Not as Interesting

This is without question one of the worst books I have ever listened to. It's basically nothing but a very, very long lecture about what was like for an upper middle class white guy to practice law from 1955 -95. The plot is basically non-existent, the dialog is stilted, and the reader sounds he's reading a textbook. He uses no expression, just the same monotonous singsong delivery. The story, what little of one there is, is just an incredibly detailed account of an average person's life - interesting to that person, but no one else. A true yawner.
