Lawyers Gone Bad
Money, Sex, and Madness in Canada's Legal ProfessionBook - 2007
People love to hate lawyers; they're probably the most distrusted among professionals. What's puzzling is that lawyers who commit crimes are often at the top of their profession - affluent and respected. Philip Slayton spent 35 years as a lawyer. He exposes the motivations and the stories of senior partners in influential Canadian firms who have illegally sustained expensive lifestyles, engaged in drug trafficking, been convicted of immigration fraud, and more. Readers will learn how the law itself can fail or be twisted.
