In The Last Resistance, Rick Friedman speaks to the heart of advocacy. He challenges you to consider what you’re really working for and to make it the center of your career. He calls on all trial lawyers to recognize themselves as the last organized resistance in an undeclared culture war in which corporations brush aside human concerns in the pursuit of profit. With his signature blend of wit and warmth, he explores the practical ways moral advocacy can help you persevere in the face of superior resources and uneven playing fields. He also outlines the ways you can cripple yourself when you internalize your opponents’ values.

Point by point, he offers ways to guard against:

  • The danger of putting business concerns ahead of professionalism and how this behavior alienates the public and the jury pool
  • The fallacy of the morally neutral zealous advocate and the view that corporations are entitled to an amoral defense
  • The self-defeating nature of comparison and why advocates are less like athletes and more like artists
  • Buying into the corporate attitude that appearance is everything and losing is for losers

 In just under an hour, Rick homes in on what advocates everywhere are fighting for. He shows you not only how to keep those values at the core of your practice but also how to turn them into your greatest assets.
