Publisher's Summary

In Strong Advocate, Thomas Strong, one of the most successful trial lawyers in Missouri's history, chronicles his adventures as a contemporary personal injury attorney. Though the profession is held in low esteem by the general public, Strong entered the field with the right motives: to help victims who have been injured by defective products or through the negligence of others.
As a twelve-year-old in rural southwest Missouri during the Great Depression, Strong bought a cow, then purchased others as he could afford them, and eventually financed his education with the milk he sold. After graduating law school and serving in the Army's Counter Intelligence Corps, he rejected offers to practice in New York and San Francisco and returned to his hometown of Springfield.

Worth a listen

Would you listen to Strong Advocate again? Why?

I might. I didn't know who Thomas Strong was before listening to this book, but he seems like the kind of attorney young attorneys should model themselves after. The story of his life the challenges he faced as a young man, and how he used his circumstances and losses to propel himself into a successful legal career were inspiring.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

The time he spent talking about his cases and his philosophy in approaching and taking on new cases.

Have you listened to any of Alan Taylor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never listened to any other of Alan Taylor's performances, but when a performer disappears into the role and does not distract from the content of the text, I think he or she does a great job. I think Mr. Taylor did that.
