Description
The Partners at Finley & Figg - all two of them - often refer to themselves as "a boutique law firm." "Boutique," as in chic, selective and prosperous. They are, of course, none of these things. What they are is a two-bit operation always in search of their big break, ambulance chasers who've been in the trenches much too long making much too little. Their specialties, so to speak, are quickie divorces and DUIs, with the occasional jackpot of an actual car wreck thrown in. After twenty plus years together Oscar Finley and Wally Figg bicker like an old married couple, but somehow continue to scratch out a half- decent living from their seedy offices in southwest Chicago. And then change comes their way. More accurately, it stumbles in. David Zinc, a young but already burned-out attorney, walks out of his fast-track career at a fancy downtown firm, goes on a serious bender and finds himself literally at the doorstep of our "boutique firm".

     Interesting and gripping 27 October, 2013 On Junglee.com
    The Litigators is a legal thriller by John Grisham.

    The book is about a 2 partner boutique law firm, Finley and Figg. Here, boutique you might think corresponds to selective, but it does not. The lawyers are ambulance chasers. They manage to stay afloat by doing quick divorces and Driving Under Influence(DUI) cases.

    But one day change comes right on their door.

    David Zinc, a young Harvard graduate burns down, leaves his fast track career, drinks a lot and finds himself at the doorstep of the boutique firm. After he sobers up, unemployed and desperate for a job, he joins the firm.

    With their new associate on board, Finley and Figg takes up a case against the pharmaceutical giant, Varrick Labs, alleging that its most popular drug Krayoxx causes heart attacks. They think that this is the case that will make them rich once and for all. But it almost seems too good to be true.

    The book is great. The author has portrayed the characters really well and in detail. He has injected a lot of humor in this novel which makes it an entertaining read.

    The book is filled with courtroom strategies, theatrics and suspense. It is fast paced and a definite page-turner. It will keep you up all night and you would want to know what happens in the end as fast as possible.

    Summing up, I think that people are not wrong when they say - John Grisham is the master of legal thrillers.

  2.  Brilliant novel 5 November, 2013 On Junglee.com
    It's a very slow paced novel but definitely a must read book.David Zinc who works for a big law firm got far too tired and burned out becoz of his tight working schedule.One day, he goes to a bar and gets himself drunk for the whole day without telling anyone which includes his wife.Then sees an ad about a boutique law firm run by two partners Oscar & Wally. In a very drunken tone tells the two partners about his interests in working there.At first they didn't believe him.The story plot gears up from there.Overall, the story plot is very well knitted.
