LETHAL LAWYERS dissects the cutthroat culture and ruthless world of big money law firms. Infighting, carnage, and sexual favors are the rule of law at the Los Angeles office of Thorne & Chase, an internationally renowned firm famous for winning at all costs. A firm whose partners and associates cannibalize each other battling for money, power, love, clients, and ultimately their own survival. With blue-collar idealism and onerous student loans, Sophia Christopoulos, first year associate, covets the firm’s money and power. But her new friendships, love, and success come with a price she didn’t expect—disillusionment, murder, and betrayal. As Sophia struggles for her survival, she is hurled into a murder investigation. She is torn between ethics and firm politics, as well as love and truth. She fights to save her career and life when she becomes a star witness and then herself a target.

About the Author:
After a life time of writing poetry, books, nonfiction, and legal documents, it was author Ray Bradbury’s friendship and encouragement that finally inspired Dale E. Manolakas to pursue writing as a career. He taught her that the characters wrote the book–she didn’t. Raised just outside Los Angeles by a surgeon father and a homemaker-author mother, Dale E. Manolakas had always aspired to an acting career, but also had to make a living.
Dale E. Manolakas earned her B.A. from the University of California at Los Angeles, and M.A., M.S., Ph.D. and J.D. degrees from the University of Southern California. She is a member of the California Bar, had the privilege of clerking for The Honorable Arthur L. Alarcón at the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, was a litigator in two major Los Angeles law firms, and a senior appellate attorney at the California Court of Appeals, as well as an Administrative Law Judge.
Before that she was a teacher, primarily at the high school, adult school, and university levels, and holds a public administrative services credential. In addition, she has pursued her passion for acting, primarily on the stage, but also in film and television. She is a member of both Actors’ Equity and SAG-AFTRA. She also has raised three very independent daughters and lives with her husband, a retired attorney, in an otherwise animal-free environment in California.
