Summary
  • A high-priced personal injury attorney takes on a case that becomes an epic legal battle ... one that may cost him his career, reputation and all that he owns
  • Jan Schlichtmann is a cynical, high-priced personal injury attorney who only takes big-money cases he can safely settle out of court. He takes on a case which at first appears straightforward, but soon becomes entangled in a labyrinthine legal battle involving industrial pollution, contaminated drinking water, and the deaths of innocent children in New England
