Their Word is Law
by Stephen M. Murphy '77

Stephen M. Murphy '77 is the author of Their Word is Law (Berkley), a collection of in-depth interviews with some of the nation's most famous attorney-novelists. Included in the collection are interviews with Scott Turow, John Grisham, David Baldacci, Richard North Patterson, Jay Brandon and the late Barry Reed '49. Novelist Steve Martini praises the book: “A prominent civil trial attorney, (Murphy) obviously did his homework before each interview. His questions get to the heart of the story and the characters. And he doesn't shy away from the tough questions.”

Murphy is a plaintiffs employment and personal injury lawyer in San Francisco. A Boston native, he is a graduate of San Francisco School of Law. A longtime fan of legal fiction, he has created a Web site, Lawyers Writing (http://www.lawyerswriting.com/), for readers and writers of the genre.
