Anthony Franze has received praise for his work as an attorney, handling cases before the Appellate and Supreme Courts. Both the New York Times and Washington Post have quoted or cited him concerning the U.S. Supreme Court. He has been a legal contributor to the New Republic, Bloomberg and National Law Journal.
Finances don’t always keep lawyers in their office chairs. Anthony Franze, author of the Supreme Court thriller The Last Justice, works in the appellate and Supreme Court practice at Arnold & Porter. He writes late at night and on weekends, with a large box fan blocking out the noise of his family. Nonetheless, he says he loves what he’s doing in law and wouldn’t quit. What’s more, he notes, writing about murder in the Supreme Court demands a deep knowledge of that world.
“[Anthony’s] 2016 novel, The Advocate’s Daughter, was named “best legal thriller of the year” on influential critic Stacy Alesi’s annual best books list. His latest release, The Outsider has been on ‘best of the year’ lists and received significant praise, including from #1 New York Times bestsellers James Patterson and Lisa Gardner and the Associated Press, which called it a ‘winning novel.'”
