Interweaving his account of the Steven Avery trial at the heart of Making a Murderer with other high profile cases from his criminal defense career, attorney Jerome F. Buting explains the flaws in America’s criminal justice system and lays out a provocative, persuasive blue-print for reform. Over his career, Jerome F. Buting has spent hundreds of hours in courtrooms representing defendants in criminal trials. When he agreed to join Dean Strang as co-counsel for the defense in Steven A. Avery vs. State of Wisconsin, he knew a tough fight lay ahead. But, as he reveals in Illusion of Justice, no-one could have predicted just how tough and twisted that fight would be—or that it would become the center of the documentary Making a Murderer, which made Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey household names and thrust Buting into the spotlight. Buting’s powerful, riveting boots-on-the-ground narrative of Avery’s and Dassey’s cases becomes a springboard to examine the shaky integrity of law enforcement and justice in the United States, which Buting has witnessed firsthand for more than 35 years. From his early career as a public defender to his success overturning wrongful convictions working with the Innocence Project, his story provides a compelling expert view into the high-stakes arena of criminal defense law; the difficulties of forensic science; and a horrifying reality of biased interrogations, coerced or false confessions, faulty eyewitness testimony, official misconduct, and more. Combining narrative reportage with critical commentary and personal reflection, Buting explores his professional and personal motivations, career-defining cases—including his shocking fifteen-year-long fight to clear the name of another man wrongly accused and convicted of murder—and what must happen if our broken system is to be saved. Taking a place beside Just Mercy and The New Jim Crow, Illusion of Justice is a tour-de-force from a relentless and eloquent advocate for justice who is determined to fulfill his professional responsibility and, in the face of overwhelming odds, make America’s judicial system work as it is designed to do.

Genre: Biography & Autobiography
In 1917 a bomb exploded in a Milwaukee police station, killing nine officers and a civilian. Those responsible never were apprehended, but police, press, and public all assumed that the perpetrators were Italian. Days later, eleven alleged Italian anarchists went to trial on unrelated charges involving a fracas that had occurred two months before. Against the backdrop of World War I, and amidst a prevailing hatred and fear of radical immigrants, the Italians had an unfair trial. The specter of the larger, uncharged crime of the bombing haunted the proceedings and assured convictions of all eleven. Although Clarence Darrow led an appeal that gained freedom for most of the convicted, the celebrated lawyer's methods themselves were deeply suspect. The entire case left a dark, if hidden, stain on American justice. Largely overlooked for almost a century, the compelling story of this case emerges vividly in this meticulously researched book by Dean A. Strang. In its focus on a moment when patriotism, nativism, and terror swept the nation, Worse than the Devil exposes broad concerns that persist even today as the United States continues to struggle with administering criminal justice to newcomers and outsiders.
Anybody can be charged with driving while impaired. Whether you regularly enjoy an evening cocktail before dinner, or have an attitude adjustment with office co-workers during "happy hour," and then sit behind the wheel to drive down a public highway, you are at risk for a DUI/DWI charge. This charge is likely to have a significant impact on many areas of your life; your income, your freedom, and your ability to get a new job. This book will arm you with everything you need to know and do if you are ever pulled over by the police and charged with a DUI/DWI. What should I say to the officer when he asks if I've been drinking? Can I refuse to take the breath test? What happens if I do? Should I just accept a plea bargain? What are the collateral consequences and how can I minimize them? You will gain valuable insights from ten of America's leading DUI/DWI attorneys on how to protect yourself and your family from the perils of the courtroom, and from the paralyzing shame of being convicted."

Did law school teach you ANYTHING about how to successfully market your law practice? You wouldn't have been compelled to read this book if it did, now would you? Contrary to what the public thinks, you and I know being an attorney can at times be a thankless, life-sucking, time consuming, family destroying profession that earns you little more than middle class wages. It's NOT the best attorneys that make the most money. Many times some of the hardest working and knowledgeable attorneys are the very ones scraping to get by, working 80 hour weeks, and giving up family time and any hope of a life outside the office. From interviewing 150+ attorneys, and seeing the inside of 400+ attorney websites, I can tell you these shocking facts: 1. 97% of attorneys tell me they've been burned, more than once, by an unscrupulous marketing company who sees them as their next ATM withdrawal. 2. The top 3 ways attorneys get burned by marketers are: A) the marketing company controls either the hosting or domain name of their website, and "rents" this to the attorney, pulling the rug out at contract's end, or extorts the attorney for thousands to own their own website; B) Proprietary reporting systems are used to create smoke and mirrors, hiding lack of results; C) Little to no marketing work is actually performed, but instead claimed to have been performed. 3. 95% of attorneys get 0 - 5 visitors to their website a day. (how will you EVER get enough potential clients to call you without enough visitors?) 4. It's possible, with proper marketing, to get your phone ringing with real, live, breathing potential clients on a DAILY BASIS, earning you 4-8 or more retained clients a month from a properly SEO'd website that draws 100+ unique visitors daily. 5. Over 90% of attorneys sacrifice tens of thousands of dollars a year in lost retentions due to untrained, unfriendly, standoffish office staff, attorney partners, lack of customer intake scripting, and utter lack of potential client follow up. 6. In your city, on your block, there are attorneys charging triple what you charge, making $300k - $500k+ a year, meanwhile other lawyers are whoring themselves out for nickels, and going broke. Yes, in THIS ECONOMY. Richard Jacobs' book, Secrets of Attorney Marketing Law School Dares Not Teach, gives you street fighter strategies and tactics you can use TODAY to earn more, work less, and get off the treadmill of mediocrity. At times irreverant, crude, rude, and unprofessional, Richard exposes the truth about what marketing works, and what doesn't. If you're easily offended, stuck on professionalism, "getting your name out there," and feel naked if you have to take a picture without the security of your law books behind you, then do not read this book.
