"A Conflict of Interest"

Adam Mitzner graduated from Brandeis University with a B.A. and M.A. in politics, and from there went directly on to law school at the University of Virginia.

After law school, he joined the litigation department of a large New York City law firm, and after a few more stops, is currently the head of the litigation department of Pavia & Harcourt LLP. Pavia & Harcourt recently received some fame because it is the law firm where Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor practiced before she was appointed to the bench.

Mitzner applied the Page 69 Test to his new novel, A Conflict of Interest, and reported the following:
Page 69 is only a few lines long, so it may not be a fair test. However, those few lines deal with Alex receiving advice that Michael Ohlig may not be innocent of the charges, and that Alex might not be using his most objective reasoning when it comes to Ohlig. In that way, even these few lines address the central theme of A Conflict of Interest -- whether the people in our lives are really who we perceive them to be.
