About the Book

The Ball Four of the legal profession, The Legal Lampoon is a practical, must-read humorous guide to the legal profession for any person considering a career in the legal field or wanting to hire an attorney. Richard Icci, a lawyer with more than twenty years experience, addresses and debunks many of the popularly held beliefs and myths about attorneys and their roles, and details how our American system of justice works.

Icci covers such topics as:

  • Types of lawyers
  • Law school experiences
  • Client billings and the mystery of billable hours
  • Myths of great salaries
  • And much more

Written from the perspective of an experienced civil and appellate litigator, The Legal Lampoon satirizes every system related to the practice of law, including legal education and the courtroom process. Down-to-earth and hilarious, The Legal Lampoon is everything you ever wanted to know about the legal profession but didn't think to ask.
