The New York Journal Of Books
"The story [The Neon Lawyer] is so well written, with a main character you will cheer on."

"Finally a writer that doesn’t add half a book of useless information.... This is a writer that sticks to the facts, adds a little bit of background about what is going on, but gets to the point."
