The novel focuses on a former Philadelphia prosecutor turned top defense attorney who finds himself in a precarious situation when his close friend is accused of murdering a young TV news reporter. The book takes the reader on a thrilling ride through the case and the Philadelphia court system.
A Philadelphia lawyer with 30 years of trial experience, Myers focuses his active law practice on transportation and personal injury law.
“My 25 years litigating in the Philadelphia-area court system inspired me to write this novel,” said Myers. “I wanted to take the reader on an entertaining, suspenseful journey through Philadelphia and its justice system. A Criminal Defense does that while also exploring the implications of this case on the characters’ lives.”
