How could a kid who was labeled a "low-IQ" student in early grade school with virtually no chance of academic success, let alone success in business, pull off a miracle? How did he find a way out of the deep, dark cavern of depression and underachievement to realize the success that most people only dream of?
Men who have experienced physical, mental, and sexual abuse are figuratively put in a straitjacket that deters success. The emotional scars experienced by adult children of alcoholics, and the addictive allure of pornography mixed with abuse, create a deadly elixir that destroys lives. This narrative is a "wake-up call" to the therapeutic community to create and design treatment programs to attack this syndrome that Jim has labeled the Trilogy Modum.
James E. Crawford Jr. Esq. is a thirty-year experienced trial lawyer who has handled thousands of criminal sex offense cases in our court system. He has discovered hard-hitting facts as to why there is a tremendous increase in sex crimes and domestic violence in this country.
Jim walks you through his own childhood struggles and the road he traveled to become an American lawyer. He gives you a "how-to" road map to find success in your own life and business. Although improbable, he ultimately realized his dream of standing next to a client with a fictitious sword in hand and using every tool he has developed as an attorney to protect and shield his clients.
Underpinning his career and life, The American Lawyer is really about a father and son who desperately tried to connect and the journey to find the redemption they both grasped in the end.
