The seven ages of a lawsuit are portrayed in new light through the lively prose of Mr. Speiser, as he tells the backstage stories in seven major tort cases in which he or members of his firm have participated during his distinguished career. More than just chronicled events observable by anyone, the author's stories reveal some of the thinking processes which turn the seven ages of a lawsuit into working tools in the resolution of controversies. More than just another collection of "stories-about-cases-the-author-has-won," the book is a discourse on the author's thesis that the American "trinity of torts" (jury trial, contingent fees, and entrepreneur lawyers) provides the best method of redressing the grievances of injured tort victims that the world's legal systems have to offer.
