When a friend told me that Litigators was a better version of “Street Lawyers”, I was wondering about it, but then I began with reading Street lawyer first then continued with Litigators
And my friend was totally right about it
Litigators had a wicked, dark sense of humor, loaded with non-sense plots that somehow I felt Grisham was laughing his own ass when writing this novel, How come litigators never enter federal courtroom before ? Oscar Finley and Wally Figg from Finley & Figg small firm were PARIAH lawyers who took trashy cases like quickie divorces or car wrecks.
and then came along young David Zinc, freshly sober, a Harvard graduate, just quit his dream job from big firm in the country, and landed at the front door of Finley & Figg ( please don’t try to use any common sense here)
Wally Figg (or I should call him Wally the Pig) tried his luck with tackled biggest case they never dream of, filled lawsuit against the biggest pharmacies and dragged their small firm into the complete failure and a humiliating fiasco.
And so David came and handled with all the mess that Wally had left. And at the end of this saga, I enjoyed the twist and I really didn’t mind with this happy-ending, after all everyone there – include the defendants, were entitled with the victory that they had pursued. it was a win-win ending, just like others Grisham’s saga
So all and all, it was a great book, I considered this is the best Grisham’s saga that I ever read, because there was no longer bad and good persons anymore, just some ordinary guys tried to make money out of bad cases
