Praise for Mickey Sherman's How Can You Defend Those People?
“When I needed an effective and colorful defense lawyer to be a character in my novels, I couldn't make up a "Mickey Sherman," so I just used the real one - read his book and you'll see why!”
--James Patterson, bestselling author
"I'm not popular with defense attorneys, especially in matters of murder. I'm one of those people who actually says to them, "How can you defend such a vile person?", or a variation on that theme. Legally, on most of his cases, I'll never agree with Mickey Sherman, but I must admit I really enjoyed his book. Underneath his sometimes fierce demeanor in the courtroom, Sherman is a witty man with an amiable personality, an expert story teller, and a lover of the law who fights hard for his clients."
--Dominick Dunne, bestselling author
“If Mark Twain came back from the dead and decided to be a lawyer in Greenwich, CT, this might give you an idea of the tone of Mickey Sherman's humorous, human, first-hand observations as he journeys through the black hole that we call our legal system.”
--Barry Levinson, Academy Award-winning director, screenwriter, and producer of Rain Man; Good Morning, Vietnam; Diner; Bugsy; Wag the Dog; and…And Justice for All
“While defense attorneys are usually my natural enemy, understanding their thinking and ‘getting into their heads' is an offer I can't refuse! And in this book, we get insight from one of the best, Mickey Sherman.”
--Nancy Grace, legal analyst and Headline News anchor
This is the real Mickey Sherman, speaking in his own voice -- irreverent, incorrigible and just plain hilarious. He has seen and done it all in the world of criminal justice and television legal analysis. No one is safe from his keen observation and knife-sharp recollection. These are true stories, with serious underpinnings, that will have you roaring with laughter at the absurdity of it all. It's a great read!
--William J. Bratton, Los Angeles Chief of Police
