First Do No Harm
A. Turk, a prominent Nashville attorney with more than thirty years of fighting high-profile courtroom battles, has captured the reality of the American justice system in his debut novel, First Do No Harm. Recently retired, A. Turk has embarked on a second career, writing fiction inspired by the remarkable stories and events from his personal and legal experiences. This first novel in the book series features A. Turk’s fictitious alter ego Attorney Benjamin Davis, a young New York transplant seeking to make a name for himself in the Nashville legal community. After miscalculating the huge risks involved in accepting ten medical malpractice cases at one time, Davis discovers that a hospital and several of its personnel, including doctors, had conspired to provide unnecessary tests and surgeries on innocent patients…for years. With small town physicians pushing all the ethical and legal boundaries, Davis decides he has no alternative but to protect an entire community and quickly finds himself caught up in a high-stakes courtroom drama. Davis could never have anticipated his decision to right a wrong could risk his legal career, marriage, financial security, and personal safety.
