For more than fifty years, Stephen A. Sheller, Esq., has been an icon of justice. In Lawyering in Times of Saints and Evildoers, he shares his career experiences showing how he became a highly recognized advocate of everyday people, passionately protecting citizens' basic rights under the US Constitution and law. While his fearless legal strategies have been controversial, Sheller nearly always achieves what he sets out to do. Readers interested in how the U.S. legal system works-and how it doesn't-will gain much from his first-hand accounts, including his representation of African American Union employees, wrongly jailed Black Panthers, women experiencing gender pay inequity in the 1960s and 70s, and his novel consumer fraud tactics still used in tobacco litigation today. Sheller has gone up against major corporations across the country, representing those they have hurt physically and financially or have denied the rights they deserve as citizens. He's been a pioneer of national whistleblower lawsuits, exposing corporate malfeasance ranging from credit scams to medical malpractice to environmental disasters. Part personal memoir, part legal thriller, this eye-opening book will inspire you to stand up for justice, equality, and the Constitution of the United States. This book lays the foundation for his next, Pharmageddon: A Nation Betrayed, starting with Bush v. Gore and focusing on the pharmaceutical industry.
