Bostwick used his vast experience as a trial lawyer to provide a rare glimpse into the world of civil trial lawyers, what motivates them, the enormous risks they take, and the choices that define them professionally and personally. Bostwick is rated among the Top 4 Trial Lawyers by the California Bar Journal. He is also featured in NewsweekTown and Country, and Forbes as one of America’s top trial lawyers.

The book has received exceptional reviews, such as this one by Walter H. Walker III, best selling author of The Crime of Privilege-

“This is a book that should be read by every trial lawyer, everyone who wants to be a trial lawyer, and everyone who wonders what it takes to be a trial lawyer. Bostwick spins a powerful, informative tale drawn from real life. The courtroom scenes leap off the page and will have the reader cheering for justice.”

Acts of Omission is set in the Bay Area introducing us to Matt Taylor–a down on his luck personal injury lawyer who has lost his wife and a string of cases. His next trial needs to be an easy win. Instead he is embroiled in a complicated lawsuit up against a powerful attorney with dubious connections. Matt pulls out all the stops to uncover the truth and right a horrific legal wrong. Acts of Omission chronicles a multi-million-dollar battle of wills, intrigue, and brutality that could cost Matt everything, including his life.
