Bibliography of Jonathan A. Weiss. Esq.
“I believed that bringing lawyers to a new class of clients, appealing when necessary to establish good precedents, bringing some affirmative class actions, working with and in a community, would be both an extension of the civil rights movement and fulfill the ideal of oppressed poor people represented in civil court- as well as then mandated in Criminal Court – would produce real social progress in conjunction with the War and Poverty.”
