Trial lawyer Sanford "Sandy" Rubenstein gives an inside look at his biggest cases, including his representation of police torture victim Abner Louima.
In this riveting memoir, super-attorney Sanford (“Sandy”) Rubenstein goes behind the scenes of his biggest cases, revealing how he helped change New York’s drunk-driving laws, won an $8.75 million settlement against New York City and its police union for torture victim Abner Louima, and gained justice for the family of African immigrant Ousmane Zongo, mistakenly gunned down by police in a Manhattan storage facility. Along the way, Rubenstein provides intimate portraits of his late colleague Johnnie Cochran, his friend and client Reverend Al Sharpton, and other giants of the legal and civil rights community. Flamboyant, outspoken, and committed to social justice, Sandy describes here what it’s like to be truly outrageous—in the best sense of the word.
