MELBOURNE, Australia (PRWEB) August 13, 2014

In his 43 years as a practicing lawyer, author Kevin O’Donnell encountered a wide and sometimes weird variety of characters, from lawyers to clients to police officers.

His new book, “Tales from the Oldest Profession: As Told by a Very Common Lawyer” (published by Balboa Press AU), reveals the curious, unusual and often funny incidents O’Donnell experienced during his law career.

“The book’s theme is the richness of experiences and humor that can arise in life generally, and the enormous variety one finds in the law community, in particular,” O’Donnell says.

O’Donnell hopes “Tales from the Oldest Profession” will entertain readers and provide them a glimpse into the world of legal practice, from his personal point of view.

An excerpt from “Tales from the Oldest Profession”:

“He was still angry and menacing. I was a fair bit younger than he was, and light on my feet, so I figured I could keep out of his way if he took a swing at me. He didn’t, but he kept repeating that I had called him a coward and should prove it … After a few minutes of this, and still muttering, he eventually gave up and wandered away. I never came across him again, but I noted that the debt and the costs were paid the next week.”
