The Litigators - Grisham, John

The Litigators is the story of a young lawyer who decides the rat race of a big law firm is not what he wants, after an awe inspiring panic attack and drinking binge. When his head clears he finds he's landed at a small boutique law firm. Boutique being a euphamism for ambulance chasers.

David Zinc is doing drudge work, that pays an amazing amount, at a very prestigious law firm. One morning he find himself panicked at the thought of going back to work. His ensuing flight finds him at the law firm of Finley & Figg, two ambulance chasers who are barely scraping by and looking for the big case that will make them rich. Finley & Figg think they have their big case with a drug that may cause heart attacks or strokes. It turns out they've taken on more than they can handle. Another great Grisham novel. Very highly recommended.
