The, partners, at, Finley, &, Figg—all, two, of, them—often, refer, to, themselves, as, “a, boutique, law, firm.”, Boutique,, as, in, chic,, selective,, and, prosperous., They, are,, of, course,, none, of, these, things., What, they, are, is, a, two-bit, operation, always, in, search, of, their, big, break,, ambulance, chasers, who’ve, been, in, the, trenches, much, too, long, making, way, too, little., Their, specialties,, so, to, speak,, are, quickie, divorces, and, DUIs,, with, the, occasional, jackpot, of, an, actual, car, wreck, thrown, in., After, twenty, plus, years, together,, Oscar, Finley, and, Wally, Figg, bicker, like, an, old, married, couple, but, somehow, continue, to, scratch, out, a, half-decent, living, from, their, seedy, bungalow, offices, in, southwest, Chicago.
And, then, change, comes, their, way., More, accurately,, it, stumbles, in., David, Zinc,, a, young, but, already, burned-out, attorney,, walks, away, from, his, fast-track, career, at, a, fancy, downtown, firm,, goes, on, a, serious, bender,, and, finds, himself, literally, at, the, doorstep, of, our, boutique, firm., Once, David, sobers, up, and, comes, to, grips, with, the, fact, that, he’s, suddenly, unemployed,, any, job—even, one, with, Finley, &, Figg—looks, okay, to, him.
With, their, new, associate, on, board,, F&F, is, ready, to, tackle, a, really, big, case,, a, case, that, could, make, the, partners, rich, without, requiring, them, to, actually, practice, much, law., An, extremely, popular, drug,, Krayoxx,, the, number, one, cholesterol, reducer, for, the, dangerously, overweight,, produced, by, Varrick, Labs,, a, giant, pharmaceutical, company, with, annual, sales, of, $25, billion,, has, recently, come, under, fire, after, several, patients, taking, it, have, suffered, heart, attacks., Wally, smells, money.
A, little, online, research, confirms, Wally’s, suspicions—a, huge, plaintiffs’, firm, in, Florida, is, putting, together, a, class, action, suit, against, Varrick., All, Finley, &, Figg, has, to, do, is, find, a, handful, of, people, who, have, had, heart, attacks, while, taking, Krayoxx,, convince, them, to, become, clients,, join, the, class, action,, and, ride, along, to, fame, and, fortune., With, any, luck,, they, won’t, even, have, to, enter, a, courtroom!
It, almost, seems, too, good, to, be, true.
And, it, is.
The, Litigators, is, a, tremendously, entertaining, romp,, filled, with, the, kind, of, courtroom, strategies,, theatrics,, and, suspense, that, have, made, John, Grisham, America’s, favorite, storyteller.
