Earlier this year, I asked Robert Fogelnest, past president of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, to read a draft of my new book, Taking Back the Courts. Bob's a good friend, now living as an expatriate in Mexico after decades of courtroom fighting in the United States. We knocked around together for a few years in Wyoming and New York a decade or so ago. Here's Fogelnest's kind words. I hope you will read them, and then decide to order the book on Amazon. More books are currently on the way.
"The thing about Norm Pattis that differentiates him from many of lawyers that I know is that he always tells the truth. And he does so in an articulate, highly intelligent, and elegant way. In this book he tells the truth about the secrets that only trial practitioners know about our legal system. He tells of the foolishness, the waste, the ugliness, the irrationality, and the lies told by Judges that only those of us who labor in the legal system every day are aware of. This is a book that every concerned American should read. Parts of it will be shocking. Parts disconcerting. Parts, possibly offensive. But, then again, that is what the truth is, is it not?"
