The underground lawyer
Explore the legal sewers according to Minns! The system isn't working as it should. "The Underground Lawyer" tells what went wrong, how to fix it & when we can't, how to live with it. Minns has written what could be called foundations in practical law, for non-lawyers. First, he gives us some legal history as background; then he introduces us to the "underground lawyer," a man or woman, sometimes a layman, sometimes a lawyer, who wades through the legal sewers, encountering a few sewer rats along the way. The underground lawyer could be Clarence Darrow battling for the first amendment or Aunt Gertrude helping you with your traffic ticket. After a preliminary introduction & legal education, Minns takes us through the American legal system, using real people, documented cases, vivid cartoons & colorful language to drive points home. This book is an encyclopedia of American jurisprudence, revealing trade secrets of the IRS (which he refers to as the American Gestapo), simplifying legal research, depicting divorce (which he labels disorganized crime), offering tips on dealing with collection agents & allowing us a glimpse into corporate boardrooms, courtrooms, judges' chambers & jail cells.
