Martin Dawson, a young aggressive attorney practicing law in the large, metropolitan City of Minneapolis, Minnesota, desired to change his life and practice law in a smaller, faster growing community in a warmer climate to attempt to create a better life for himself and his family. Martin had a small base of Minnesota clients who were developing real estate in Southwest Florida, in and around the City of Fort Myers. Martin and his wife decided that practicing law in Florida may enhance the quality of their family’s life as well as Martin’s professional life. LIES, LARCENY & LAWYERS, takes the reader through Martin’s journey of practicing law in four different law firms. It tells the story of Martin’s frustrations with, not the clients he represented, but with the lawyers he became associated with through that journey. The difficulty of practicing his profession with lawyers who lie, cheat, steal and even murder to get ahead was a difficult course for Martin to navigate. Martin’s quandary was whether he could find that perfect legal environment where the attitudes and comradery of the lawyers he worked with would allow him to find himself the professional fulfillment for practicing his profession that he was so desperately seeking. That journey was difficult, while interacting with unique individuals who made that journey nearly impossible.
