Founding Partner Peter Afrasiabi Releases New Book

One LLP is excited to announce that founding partner Peter Afrasiabi’s new book, Burning Bridges: America’s 20-Year Crusade to Deport Labor Leader Harry Bridges, releases this week.

With a Foreword by Erwin Chemerinsky, the book is the true story of America’s longest and most bitter deportation battle.

Set during the Cold War and the Red Scare, and based on previously secret FBI FOIA and National Archive documents, the book charts the legal and political intrigue of the four serial trials against San Francisco labor leader Harry Bridges. It assesses the prosecutors and FBI investigators, the judges and courts, and the larger-than-life defense lawyers who risked prison and disbarment in their efforts to save Harry Bridges.

“Utterly enjoyable … excellent and crisp… The story is gripping, at times gritty, and readers will love to follow Bridges as he fights for justice and a cause he believes in,”  San Francisco Book Review.
