Poetry. IN CHAMBERS captures the feel of practicing criminal defense while maintaining a philosophical approach to preserving the freedom and dignity of the individual. Krech explains the US legal system in an accessible way and firmly says No! to the injustices in it without stridency or anger. This collection is inspiring both as poetry as well as legal insight.
