With foreword by Senator Bernie Sanders

In The Price of Justice, Washington DC attorney and award-winning author Ronald Goldfarb presents a fascinating and edgy look at the shortcomings of our legal justice system and how many of them are rooted in the flawed construction of the ethical rules governing lawyers. This book takes a look at the he impacts of economic disparity on the general public’s ability to access legal representation within a system that’s largely pay-to-play, pointing out that the astronomical fees established by most private practitioners are unaffordable to the low and middle class families in need of legal counsel, and as a result these demographics are left to fend for themselves in instances of legal distress. Timely in its useful comparisons of this issue to the national conversation about health care, The Price of Justice is a highly relevant publication that taps into the increasing public awareness of and interest in federal judicial system, following a few recent high-profile court appointments and white-collar trials. This book urges those within the legal profession to consider the ethical responsibility, not to mention the constitutional goals, for ensuring justice is equally accessible for everyone and calls to action groups and educators to begin to effect this change.
