Roger and Tom talk about his series of satirical legal novels, including the just released “Send In The Tort Lawyer$,” his time in private practice where he pioneered false advertising litigation, and how the legal profession has changed over the past 40 years.

Tom Morrison is the author of satirical legal novels including “Please Pass the Tort$” and “Tort$ “R” US.” Before becoming an author, Tom spent more than 50 years as a lawyer, first in the Air Force JAG Corps and then at several distinguished New York law firms.

Tom served on the TFAS Board of Regents for more than a decade. He and his wife established the Thomas and Sarah Morrison Scholarship Fund for students from Otterbein University in Westerville, Ohio.
