Mark Langley is an idealistic 32-year old lawyer who gets fired from one of Boston's most prestigious law firms after sabotaging a corporate client's defense of a sexual harassment lawsuit. Now a pariah in the Boston legal community, he takes a job as a legal services lawyer representing tenants in eviction cases in his blue-collar hometown of Worcester, Massachusetts. Soon Mark gets pulled into two high-stakes legal battles. In one, he fights to keep a single mother and her teenage son from being evicted from a large public housing complex. In the other, he challenges a plan to divert federal funds away from the low-income community and into the pockets of private developers, leading him to go head-to-head against his old firm. With a riveting plot and unforgettable characters, The Tenant Lawyer chronicles the harsh realities of urban justice and a young lawyer's complicated relationship with his hometown.
