Editorial Reviews

Review

  • KIRKUS REVIEW: "SMASHING LEGAL-THRILLER DEBUT" Benigno's first effort is a crafty legal page-turner, just as good in the courtroom as it is outside...Benigno fortifies his lead character with problems that his law degree can't fix. Readers who like their courtroom thrillers packed with lawyer-speak and zigzagging plot developments should find much to savor.
  • PUBLISHERS WEEKLY REVIEW April, 2014: Benigno presents an engaging but diffuse picture of legal skirmishing and moral ambiguity in the saga of Nick Mannino...The interesting glimpses of courtroom procedure and a cast of eccentric characters will intrigue readers...

  • BOOKSPOT.COM REVIEW (STARRED REVIEW)by Chris Algernon 5/6/12 ...The Good Lawyer delivers a genuinely audacious twist that is both effective and very powerful. It's testament to Thomas Benigno's writing that The Good Lawyer remains believable throughout...Benigno creates a sympathetic (if at times slightly naive) protagonist...The twist is a good one, being neither easily guessable or outlandishly absurd. By the end of the novel, there's a sense of something really epic (on a human scale) unfolding. The Good Lawyer...rapidly picks up speed...on the way to a climax that will likely remain in the minds of most readers for quite some time.
  • MEN READING BOOKS BLOGSPOT.COM REVIEW
  • Benigno's mastery comes through in introducing and developing character after character and weaving them into a complex and totally believable story that connects them all together in the end. The setting too is inspiring and nostalgic ...a flash back to simpler times. I hope we hear more from Thomas Benigno.

  • WHY I WROTE THE GOOD LAWYER BY THOMAS BENIGNO "As a Legal Aid Attorney in the South Bronx in 1982, I handled the grittiest of cases. These cases didn't just include the run-of-the-mill burglaries and robberies or drug deals at a time when miles of square blocks there were leveled to rubble and burnt out buildings seemed to be everywhere. There were much more horrible crimes there. And I was defender of it all. But this is not why I became a lawyer. I wanted to do some good--help the innocent--give the guilty poor a second chance-a chance for a better life outside of prison.
    I graduated near the top of my law school class, tried a case in my 3rd year and won, took the job at Legal Aid in the Bronx to hone my skills prior to entering private practice. There were high hopes for me. I started out on fire getting more cases dismissed in Criminal Court than just about anyone. I was cocky, a bit arrogant. I had the makings of one damn good trial lawyer. For my age, I was convinced there was no one better. I had also fallen in love. Didn't think I needed to study for the bar. Then I flunked. After I passed I was on a mission to prove myself. Failing was humiliating. So I took on the most difficult of cases intent on winning at almost any cost, and I did win, time and again. Rapists, child molesters and drug dealers were freed, and all my doing. I was a young man with a conscience drowning my own success.
    This was not the boy my Mom raised me to be. She purposely kept me away from my mob connected relatives who were now dropping like flies in burnt out cadillacs and after hour joints--charred remains of flesh, stuffed in garbage cans, wrapped in plastic.
    Then a case came through the system-headlines-no prior arrest record-horrible crime. He could be innocent.
    This is why I became a lawyer-to champion for the innocent man.
    And so life set me up for the greatest fall ever. Years later I couldn't shake what I had done, so I wrote it down. The original title of my novel was "The Confession." Then Grisham came out with it. So why not then..."The Good Lawyer."
    A fictional account--the names changed to protect the innocent. My name on the cover remains the same.
