Filthy Rich Lawyers: The Education of Ryan Coleman by David Tabatsky and Brian Felgoise

Synopsis:

In the first installment of the Filthy Rich Lawyers series, The Education of Ryan Coleman begins in a Texas courtroom where an ambitious lawyer from Philadelphia chases his share of a class action lawsuit involving a defense contractor. After getting his ass reamed by the judge for speaking out of turn, Coleman meets Robert Smalley, a brilliant attorney and borderline criminal who boasts that “I have the greatest practice of law in the world because I have no clients.” He introduces Coleman to a world of wealth and power, including Eugenia “Gene” Cauley, a female shark in a male-dominated legal world whose life spirals tragically out of control. As Coleman encounters a series of personal and professional crises, he meets Randall Hollis, an insanely successful lawyer turned multi-billionaire, who is pursuing his ultimate American dream: buying a professional football team. Coleman becomes his “errand boy,” but as Hollis is investigated by journalists, law associations and government agents, Coleman must decide if he wants to remain in this increasingly sordid circle.

Federal prosecutor Patrick Coyle wants to take Hollis down, so he aligns with Dick Dickey, former Secretary of Defense and CEO of a military contractor, to ruin Hollis and Coleman. When an escort mysteriously dies in Hollis’ penthouse, Coleman becomes an unwitting accomplice and must choose between covering for his boss and saving his marriage or telling the truth and risk going to prison. Filthy Rich Lawyers is loosely based on interactions that co-author Brian Felgoise has had in his legal career with lawyers, judges and plaintiffs. How the lawyers use their money and power will shock, amuse, and entertain readers.

Praise for Filthy Rich Lawyers:

“I laughed out loud at the salty wise cracks on most every page. But underneath the lightning paced humor is a serious message about corruption in class action litigation. Filthy Rich Lawyers is a hilarious satire about a very real problem.” — Matt Flynn, author of Milwaukee Jihad.

“Wow!! This book has it all—lifestyle, fashion, style, money. Who would have thought that a book about an ambitious lawyer from Philly could be so entertaining?” — Maria Liberati, Gourmand World Award–Winning Author/Celebrity Chef

“The insane dollar amounts had my head spinning as I found myself devilishly grinning at the razor-sharp satire. Filthy Rich Lawyers offers a compelling class-action look at what is an area of mystery for most of us.” -Ryan Gatenby, host of The Big Wakeup Call on WBIG-AM

“What we have is a caustic narrative rich in humorous episodes that are frequently surreal. Yet, there is something to be said about the hidden theme of the tale where, in the realm of class-action attorneys, there is very often disregard for the plaintiffs’ interests with the awarding of millions of dollars. Who frequently benefits the most from these settlements? The lawyers stride away with dumbfounding fees, leaving very little to their clients. Stay tuned for book two.” -Norm Goldman, Book Pleasures

In the fourth and final installment for the series, Alex faces his most difficult case yet—the school bully.

Despite the constant insults, when the bully is murdered and comes to him for help, Alex sets aside the past to help a soul in need. Searching for the killer, Alex uncovers a truth that answers the question why he was the victim of Kyle negative attention, and the answers that will set them both free.

EXCERPT:

Alex glanced up to the hovering apparition and raised his chin slightly left toward the door. He hoped the spirit would follow, but instead, it quickly vanished, so he took the cue and let it go. Clasping Margaret’s hand, he ushered them from the store.

Outside, the fragrance of freshly cut grass and blossoming tulips tickled his nostrils. A perfect Spring day. The young couple had strolled the fifteen-minute walk into the small village at the center of Floral Park, taking advantage of the warmer climate.

“It’s super nice out.” Alex smiled.

“It is. I love Spring. Hey, what happened in there?” Margaret asked.

“What do you mean?”

“I thought you spotted something.”

“I did. But they didn’t want my help.”

“Huh. Did you get a good look at what it was?”

“I didn’t know them, but it was definitely an older man. I’d say somewhere around my gram’s age.” Alex glanced over his shoulder back at the store.

“That’s sad.”

“How come?” Alex raised a brow.

“He’s in a drug store for eternity? Why? What keeps him there? Why doesn’t he cross over?”

“You sound like me.” Alex chuckled.

“Well, it was bound to rub off some time.” She lay her head on his shoulder.

“I’m just glad that’s over with.”

“I know.” Margaret gave him a quick peck on the cheek.

Rounding the corner at the end of the block stood a structure Alex struggled with for most of his seventeen years. Coming from a lineage of witches whose roots were planted in Italy, the paradoxical blend of spells and Catholicism baffled him. He chose to believe in spirituality, embracing his ancestors and calling on them in times of need.

Alex let Margaret’s hand slip through his fingers. Across the street, directly in front of the church, was a small park with a handful of benches. His gaze focused on the ornate stained glass adorning the round window above the sturdy oak doors. What the hell? Without care, he stepped into the road and in front of an oncoming car. Luckily, Margaret’s scream freed him from his trance in time for him to jump out of the way. A loud screech from the tires of the irate driver didn’t completely mask the language he yelled from the window.

Margaret rushed to his side and pulled Alex to a bench facing the building that had captivated his attention a few moments ago.

“What the hell?” Margaret slapped his arm.

“Sorry. I don’t know what came over me.” Alex glared at the church. “That’s not true.”

“Okay, spill.” Margaret scooted back and crossed her legs.

“Wait, where’s my bag?” Alex nervously looked around.

“Crap. It’s over there.” Margaret pointed to the asphalt.

“I’ll get it.” Alex motioned to stand.

“Oh, no you don’t. One near-death today is enough. I’ll get it. Stay here.”

Normally he’d argue the issue, but he didn’t trust himself either. The range of emotions creeping along his veins and occupying dread in his gut burned a volcano of doubt in his psyche.

Margaret halted at the sidewalk’s edge and turned her head from side to side before venturing into the middle of the road. She snatched up the bag and scurried back to the bench.

She stretched out her arm to hand the bag to Alex, “Thanks.”

“I’m just that kind of girlfriend. Risking life and limb for the guy I love.”

Alex rolled his eyes.

“Now, where were we? Oh, I remember, you were gonna tell me why you froze in the middle of the goddamn street.” Margaret knitted her brows.

“Once again—sorry. When I saw the church, I had a vision. The building was destroyed like a bomb or something had incinerated it. The darkness crept along the walls. It was like…a living thing.” Alex shuddered.

“Yup, just another day in the world of you.”
