    I did not read these together, I read The Client a long time ago and enjoyed it But then I read The Street Lawyer It wasn t altogether bad, just not something I could get into since it became obvious that Grisham just want to spout his political views rather than giving an honest story Unlike Grisham, I do not merely research the homeless through some interviews, I have lived in areas where they reside and work in areas where I have to clean up after them To really get a feel for this story, I did not read these together, I read The Client a long time ago and enjoyed it But then I read The Street Lawyer It wasn t altogether bad, just not something I could get into since it became obvious that Grisham just want to spout his political views rather than giving an honest story Unlike Grisham, I do not merely research the homeless through some interviews, I have lived in areas where they reside and work in areas where I have to clean up after them To really get a feel for this story, I would have to accept every premise he writes, and I don t Call me cruel, or heartless, but I am not all that tender towards the homeless Living in areas they inhabit means that anything not tied down will be stolen since they have a huge sense of entitlement If a person has something and they don t, they feel they have a right to take it or break it And working around them means I have to wade through their trash and excrement, be threatened on regular basis, and generally take their abuse as they hide behind the pity And I can t really relate to a story of a man who felt guilty for working for 12 hours a day, as opposed to wandering around demanding that someone take care of them I know they are not all bad, I help the ones who truly wish to change their circumstance by having the phone numbers of the agencies they can turn to But I also know that many of them aren t all that unhappy with their choices, they prefer sympathy to working at changing their life If Grisham didn t want to sit secure at his writing desk and make a political statement based on one side of the story, he should have actually taken the time to see it for himself and try offering something a littlebalanced It is really fiction, that s for sure

    The Street Lawyer is about a protagonist named Michael Brock who survived being a hostage of a homeless man going by the name Mister The protagonist of the story becomes traumatized by the event and experience s survivor s guilt, a feeling of guilt when you survive a situation but someone else dies Throughout the book, the protagonist spends his time trying to figure out the life of Mister and changes by becoming less focused at his work.Although this book was very suspenseful, I didn t like The Street Lawyer is about a protagonist named Michael Brock who survived being a hostage of a homeless man going by the name Mister The protagonist of the story becomes traumatized by the event and experience s survivor s guilt, a feeling of guilt when you survive a situation but someone else dies Throughout the book, the protagonist spends his time trying to figure out the life of Mister and changes by becoming less focused at his work.Although this book was very suspenseful, I didn t like the book because I believe that the majority of the book was the protagonist investigating the life of the homeless man who was killed for holding lawyers hostage

    The first story of the book was very good.The second story was a tad too preachy.

    In the book, The Street Lawyer, by John Grisham, Michael Brock, a big time lawyer working for the firm, Drake Sweeney, for seven years now, experiences many changes in his life Michael is held hostage with his fellow coworkers when a homeless man named Mister keeps them hostage and asks how much money they donate to homeless people from their salaries every year After every lawyer says little or no money goes to the homeless, Mister is shot to death by the police, and this leaves Michael to In the book, The Street Lawyer, by John Grisham, Michael Brock, a big time lawyer working for the firm, Drake Sweeney, for seven years now, experiences many changes in his life Michael is held hostage with his fellow coworkers when a homeless man named Mister keeps them hostage and asks how much money they donate to homeless people from their salaries every year After every lawyer says little or no money goes to the homeless, Mister is shot to death by the police, and this leaves Michael to experience some trauma He volunteers at a soup kitchen with Mordecai Green and meets the Burton family Mordecai offers Michael a job and he decides to quit the firm and work for the 14th Street Legal Clinic, that helps homeless people with legal issues He ends up filing a trial with the help from Mordecai against his old firm when he finds out that the Burton family had been evicted by the firm when they were paying tenants The lawyer, Braden Chance, who organized the eviction tried to hide the fact that the evictees were paying tenants Michael found this out from stealing a file from Drake Sweeney The eviction caused the family to head out back into the streets and die from bad air in the car they were living in, Michael thinks there should be a price paid for the deaths The two sides agree on a settlement of five million dollars and Michael looses his law license for nine months because stealing a file is a criminal offense More lawyers from Drake Sweeney will volunteer to help with homeless cases as part of this whole incident A theme of this story is to help people Michael Brock left the high paid firm to work for homeless people and get paid almost nothing to help them He answered the higher calling of him This quote explains the theme, We got into this business because we thought the law was a higher calling We could fight injustice and social ills, and do all sorts of greats things because we were lawyers p.198 Michael Brock would have to be my favorite character He is my favorite character because he did such a good thing by leaving his high paid firm for getting paid little to nothing at the clinic He left to help people that needed moneythan he did Michael will change lives of many people for the greater good The fact that Michael is willing to change his whole life is so inspiring for other people to get involved in the world and help people I didn t dare think of the future the past was still happening p.372 This is the last sentence Michael says in the book and its important because he means he doesn t care what will happen to him as long as he s helping people and is happy doing it.I would recommend this book to other people I would recommend it because it has a great meaning to help people I would also recommend this book because you can switch the type of law you practice from being corporate law to street law and still be satisfied with encouraging people to change their lives This book also shows how someone changed their job in a week with no thought about it and was happy with it I would recommend this book to anyone who has interest in the law or in becoming a lawyer Also, anyone who has ever had trouble with the law or kept a secret from the law should read this book because you can always get out of a situation if you know how to deal with it properly

    John Grisham s The Street Lawyer is the dramatic story of a mans desire to do good, at all costs The plot focuses on how ones conscience can get turned inside out, and the journey to regain what was lost to the temptations of society Michael Brock, a young and very successful lawyer is on the fast track to greatness and an even greater paycheck One day he and several other lawyers at Drake Sweeney are taken hostage by an armed homeless man The crisis ends with the homeless man dead an John Grisham s The Street Lawyer is the dramatic story of a mans desire to do good, at all costs The plot focuses on how ones conscience can get turned inside out, and the journey to regain what was lost to the temptations of society Michael Brock, a young and very successful lawyer is on the fast track to greatness and an even greater paycheck One day he and several other lawyers at Drake Sweeney are taken hostage by an armed homeless man The crisis ends with the homeless man dead and the only injury sustained is Michael s conscience He decides to look into the man who took him hostage and becomes obsessed with the struggle of the homeless He leaves his high paying job at Drake Sweeney for a job as a poverty lawyer but not before stealing a file that could cost the firm everything The author uses the device of character development, almost constantly, throughout the story As the story takes shape the main character says things like I was not the same person I had been the week before showing us that he is aware that he is changing rapidly Also in many cases we see that the main character is in fact re gaining his conscience when he goes from a job paying handsomely to one that is barely enough to get by I set out to read another adventurous book about the legal system and the life associated with it but to my pleasant surprise this book offers muchWhile telling a story of injustice and change the reader also enjoys the journey of a man struggling to change the world If you enjoy stories about multiple issues, and combined plot lines, all encompassing the journey toward a better tomorrow, then The Street Lawyer wont disappoint And when it ends you will be left with the thought that anyone can make a sacrifice, but without intent and action, true change cannot happen

    Too much swearing The situations were believable The author painted the pictures well, you could really visualize the people and the places It was very suspenseful After finishing it I wasn t sorry that I had read it, but I knew it wasn t one of my favorite books.You could relate to the boy Mark and to his brother Ricky It was actually a blessing to the family that the boys went through what they went through But the author didn t really ever point out that fact There was probably too mu Too much swearing The situations were believable The author painted the pictures well, you could really visualize the people and the places It was very suspenseful After finishing it I wasn t sorry that I had read it, but I knew it wasn t one of my favorite books.You could relate to the boy Mark and to his brother Ricky It was actually a blessing to the family that the boys went through what they went through But the author didn t really ever point out that fact There was probably too much good luck and not enough smart thinking in the beginning of this story If Mark had not hired a lawyer then no one would have suspected that he knew anythingthan what he had told them but then there wouldn t have been any story to tell, right I don t know if I would recommend this book to just anyone, because of the language in it The brief description on the back of the book Mark, an 11 yr old boy and his younger brother Ricky, were sharing a cigarette in the woods near their trailer home when a chance encounter with a suicidal lawyer left Mark knowing a bloody and explosive secret the whereabouts of the most sought after dead body in America He s caught between a legal system gone mad and a mob killer desperate to cover up his crime His only ally is a woman named Reggie Love, who has been a lawyer for all of four years Prosecutors are willing to break all the rules to make Mark talk The mob will stop at nothing to keep him quiet And Reggie will do anything to protect her client even take a last, desperate gamble that could win Mark his freedomor cost them both their lives
