During the 1960s and 70s, if you were in Philadelphia and in trouble, the person to call was Bobby Simone, the attorney who defended all kinds of people in legal jams--from Lillian Reis to Angelo Bruno (The Docile Don) to Linda Lovelace to Nicky Scarfo. He was known as the Get-Out-of-Jail-Free lawyer for acquittals and reversals. Simone writes about his life as a high-profile attorney, watching friends die, have his life threatened, landing in jail himself (the government is a sore loser, he states). Plenty of mob info, legal maneuverings, and Vegas connections (including coverage of Simone's association with Oscar Goodman, another attorney and former mayor of Las Vegas.) Indexed, illustrated, 340 pages, hardbound, 2001.
