"'The perfect gift for the lawyer in your life' - " --The Independent
The funny and subversive 'Queen's Counsel' cartoon strip has appeared on the law pages of "The Times" since 1993, delighting the legal profession and general readers alike with its accurate and biting send-up of the profession and its practices. Here - allegedly! - is the best of them. In these pages, readers will delight in Geoffrey Bentwood QC, who specialises in boring his clients to death, while not-so-secretly longing to be promoted to the bench; his sidekick, Edward Longwind, who takes lessons in pomposity from Sir Geoffrey; Richard Loophole of Loophole and Fillibuster who does his best to bankrupt his clients, while working his associates to death and pretending to remember some of the law he learned at school; and at the mercy of all of them is the luckless Mr Sprocket, the endlessly unsuccessful litigant whose lawyers will not rest until they have spent all of his money. This work features the best of the 'Queen's Counsel' cartoon strip from "The Times".See all Product description

As a retired lawyer, I found this wickedly funny. The cartoons and captions are a brilliant satire and in some instances uncomfortably close to reality. A wonderful good value for money 'stocking filler' present for anyone working in the field of law. I look at my copy again and again when I want a good laugh.

This is a humorous & rib-cracking look at little-known aspects of legal practice, the court system and lawyers. I laughed so much that the guy sitting next to me on a 6-hour plane journey, as soon as I finished reading it, grabbed hold of it almost without asking. I definitely recommend it to lawyers and the general reading public.

Neatly observed and wickedly funny, Steuart & Francis' "Lawyers Uncovered" peers under the jargon, lifts up the wigs and pokes around in the darkest corners of the legal profession. The result will have the lawyers in your life alternately weeping with laughter and drafting their defamation suits - just don't show it to the clients!

What a genius this man Williams is. To draw the humour out of the dry business of barristering puts him on a par with John Mortimer, creator of Rumpole, but this man is a zillion times more accessible. If you've ever cussed a lawyer (even silently) this is a must. A gem that makes a perfect gift.

Williams' drawings are fantastic. They manage to inject a large dose of humour into the world of law, which is no mean feat. A must buy for all lawyers - and for anyone who has ever had the misfortune of instructing one!
