T.L. Bequette: Criminal Defense Attorney and Author of Good Lookin'
Show Notes

Hi, and welcome to episode number 75! Today I'm chatting with criminal defense attorney turned writer T.L.Bequette.

Located in Oakland, California, most of T.L.'s practice involves defending accused murderers. His outlook on the criminal justice system's need for reform, the unbalanced jury selection process, and his fight for those receiving harsher sentences than they deserve, is what fuels his writing. 

Bequette's writing is inspired by his time in the courtroom where he has tried over 20 murder cases. His skill in delivering closing arguments and presenting the stories of his clients to the jury make him a master storyteller. Good Lookin' is his debut novel and weaves his expertise from the courtroom into the page of a thrilling mystery.

He holds degrees from The University of the Pacific and Georgetown Law School and serves annually on faculty of the Stanford Law School Trial Advocacy Clinic.
