A mother in New York sneaks her young daughter out of a research hospital. A billionaire philanthropist in Texas fights to save his dying son at all costs. A young traffic-ticket lawyer in Austin named Andy Prescott runs his legal empire out of a tiny office above a tattoo parlor and dreams of being a rich lawyer. Five lives on separate paths—until Andy defends the billionaire's secretary against a speeding ticket. Their lives become fatefully intertwined, destined to intersect—in death. And Andy Prescott learns that a client can be too rich for his lawyer’s own good.

Editorial Reviews:

"The Common Lawyer is about an overpowering need to right a shocking wrong, and it contains violence, romance and some heart-warmingly managed ethical dilemmas . . . The pace is perfect; the style clean and transparent; the emotional manipulation, effective; and you can see the film from here. It will entertain many people."
- Times Literary Supplement (UK)

"Mark Gimenez writes colloquially smart dialogue but plots like an old master."
- The Australian

"The Common Lawyer is an addictive, compulsive read. With an interesting, flawed protagonist who matures as the novel progresses, a cast of well-drawn and diverse characters, and a great plot (not to mention the unexpected twist at the end), this is a must-read novel. Highly recommended, The Common Lawyer will keep you reading into the night."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from the common lawyer M G did it again for me. It is a fun and exciting read. Very entertaining and holds your attention. Makes a C student a real hero where it counts with people who count. How could that storyline not be a good read? Way to go Gimenez!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Common Lawyer This book was cheesy but a good cheesy! A very light read with some good humor. It was the second book of Mark's that I have read...I will continue reading his books.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast moving Slow start, picks up gradually. Once in to the book the plot thickens and action picks up. The characters are well defined with a definite sub plot keeping mystery alive. The ending is not expected but is welcome. Well written and fast paced.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The common lawyer Book started out slow but then picked up at a fast pace! Since I am not familiar with Austin I found the chase episodes to be too detailed constantly Naming all the streets. Otherwise the plot was very different and definitely very suspenseful.
