  • 85,825 Words

At its heart, Leaning on the Arc is the story of what can happen to people when they are objectified--and how the law can be used to bring justice to those for whom justice is often denied--told over the span of nine key cases in the illustrious career of renowned criminal defense attorney M. Gerald Schwartzbach.
Part memoir and part case history, Gerald "Gerry" Schwartzbach demonstrates why and how true justice can only happen when we refused to objectify the defendant -- whether it be Hollywood legend Robert Blake, civil rights activist Stephen Bingham, or Hootan Roozrokh, the youngest transplant surgeon in the United States -- regardless of his or her alleged crime.
Finally, Leaning on the Arc is also a primer for law students and lawyers starting their careers -- at either the defense or prosecutor's table. It is a firsthand, material, and applicable account of what it takes to practice criminal defense law at a high level, how it really works, what to watch out for, and how it all feels.
