Lawyers in contemporary literature

For a Cambridge UP project with a deadline about a year from now, I want to look at the depiction of lawyers in "contemporary" literature. I am, therefore, asking list members to share titles with me. Note: "contemporary" is pretty vague in this context, so use your own judgement. You might also, for the sake of timeliness, include streaming/broadcast/film narrative as well. Respond here or to me directly at jonchristiansuggs@gmail.com.

Regards and thanks,

Chris Suggs
