The Burning ManLarge Print - 1997
Peter Hale is a young attorney struggling to make his own mark in his father's law firm. When his father becomes ill during the trial of a multimillion-dollar case, Peter takes over against his father's wishes, to prove himself. In his zeal, Peter neglects his client and loses the case, his job, and his father's support. Unemployed and disinherited, Peter takes a job as a public defender in a small town where he becomes involved in a death penalty case. Only when he realises that his greed and ego may get his client killed does Peter begin to understand what being a good lawyer means.
