The brief on turning my legal experience into fiction: Alexandra Shapiro
Alexandra Shapiro is a New York criminal defence attorney and one of the leading appeals lawyers in the United States. Early in her legal career Alexandra was a clerk for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, when the iconic legal figure had just started on the Supreme Court. Alexandra was a federal prosecutor in Manhattan before starting her own firm. She has a particular focus on the defence of criminal insider trading cases…these are complex cases where she says sometimes people can unwittingly find themselves charged with really serious crimes…
While she’s deep in the work of true life crime every day, Alexandra has turned to writing fiction as a way to shed light on how the criminal justice system works…and its failings. Her debut legal crime thriller is called PRESUMED GUILTY.
