Edmond Gagnon‘s review Jan 14, 2022 


I could find no reason to give this book any less than five stars. Considering the page count, it was a quick and easy read. The plot was a bit intricate but it moved well and held my interest throughout.
The story was like an action thriller, without all kinds of killing and mayhem. Instead, the author relied on suspense and intrigue to keep the pace lively and exciting.
A legal story that lacks Grisham’s riveting courtroom drama, it gives readers a whole new take on what it’s like for a hungry young wannabe lawyer.
My only minor disappointment was how the story ended so abruptly…I was waiting for a unique twist or turn of fait, but it just ended. Still, it was a great read.

A bit slow off the start, this book was truly enjoyable. Grisham is a master a weaving a courtroom tale and this story takes you a step further – into the office of Finley and Figg, two ambulance chasers. Formerly being in law enforcement, and spending hundreds of hours in courtrooms, I found myself chuckling and relating to the lawyers in this story. I’ve seen all sorts of good and bad lawyers in action and Grisham’s characterizations are right on.
The Litigators is kind of a riches to rags to riches kind of story for one particular lawyer who leaves a power legal firm with hundreds of solicitors to join a ’boutique law firm.’ Some of the plot is predictable, but the author keeps the story fun and interesting along the way. The ending wasn’t a big surprise and leaves you feeling satisfied with how you got there.
