Portland journalist Leeson details the noble and nefarious deeds of the legal profession in the Rose City (nicknamed such by a lawyer) and discusses, lists, and pictures the city's legal establishment from Oregon Territory days through the Progressive Era, wars, the tumultuous 1970s, the 1990s, and into the future.
