When Mitch McDeere signed on with Bendini, Lambert & Locke of Memphis, he thought that he and his beautiful wife, Abby, were on their way. The firm leased him a BMW, paid off his school loans, arranged a mortgage, and hired the McDeeres a decorator. Mitch should have remembered what his brother Ray–doing fifteen years in a Tennessee jail–already knew: You never get nothing for nothing. Now the FBI has the lowdown on Mitch’s firm and needs his help. Mitch is caught between a rock and a hard place, with no choice–if he wants to live.
Quotes from The Firm by John Grisham
Some of our clients have not been saints, but no lawyer can dictate morals to his client.
Our clients are our only assets, so we kill ourselves for them.
Billing was the lifeblood of the firm. Everything revolved around it.
