Peter Alpert about this book: Small towns are supposed to be havens from the complexities of life in the urban areas. But when George Schmidt sustains life=threatening injuries in an accident, he sadly learns how things can get turned upside down. The book is an inside look into life in a small town and how the local government can act in ways never imagined. What is shown on TV about trials is meant to glamorize what actually takes place in order to keep the viewer engrossed in the story. However, what happens in real courtroom dramas takes on another life and highlights how difficult it is for the average citizen to get justice.
I represented George Schmidt throughout his legal ordeal and felt it was a story worth telling. While the book is a work of fiction, the plot closely follows actual events. Looking for a way to let prospective readers know what the book was about, I scoured the internet for a picture which depicts how this story started and later developed. Readers should understand how difficult it is to stand up to governmental agencies, which is why the first chapter of the book is entitled David v. Goliath.
