The inspiring memoir of a man The New York Times has called a "power broker with blarney in his pen."

James F. Gill is one of the most influential New Yorkers you've never heard of. Now a senior partner at a prestigious New York law firm, Gill has quietly made his mark in the rarefied worlds of business and politics while distinguishing himself as a determined and idealistic advocate of the public interest.

Gill has represented trade unions and celebrity estates; he has rubbed shoulders with governors and mayors; he is known and trusted by New York's movers and shakers. And as the head of the Battery Park City Authority, he is at the center of the efforts to rebuild Lower Manhattan in the aftermath of the attacks on the World Trade Center. Brimming with insight, passion, and his trademark humor, For James and Gillian is the story of a remarkable public servant whose accomplishments and idealism will inspire readers of all ages.

A graduate of Fordham Law School and a veteran of the Marine Corps, James F. Gill is currently a senior partner of the law firm of Robinson, Silverman, Pearce Aronsohn and Berman. He is the chairman of the board of trustees of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. He lives in New York.
