Going on My Own: 21st Century Legal Tales: A Memoir of Life as an International Lawyer

  Legal biographies embrace the noble, the solemn, and the heroic. The authors who write them walk a fine line between a dramatic and engrossing tale and the reach for literary glory. Examples include legal titans Louis Brandeis, Edward Benett Williams, and Sonia Sotomayor. But, for every Clarence Darrow wanna-be that ever galvanized a jury, there toils the counselor whose contribution to the legal arts is just as brilliant – but goes unnoticed - and whose dedicated career and personal story is the reality show of the everyday courtroom.

Veteran New York Attorney Robert Layton has brought one of these stories to light in his new book, Going on My Own: 21st Century Legal Tales: A Memoir of Life as an International Lawyer.

The segment begins with Layton explaining how the book came about.
