The Memorandum:

A True Story of Justice Forged from Fire

A Shocking Look at an Auto Giant’s Deadly Cover-Up and a Grieving Family’s Fight for Justice.

In The Memorandum, attorney Robert W. Kelley offers a gripping account of his years-long epic battle against one of the world’s most powerful companies and his efforts to seek justice for a family devastated by its misconduct.

Part legal thriller, part personal memoir, part trial strategy, attorney Kelley’s narrative brings to life one of the most important legal cases of the decade. A giant corporation, a secret memo exposing its reprehensible conduct, legions of defense lawyers blocking the truth, all brought to justice by Kelley and his relentless band of warriors.

“A kind of David vs. Goliath story of a major car company’s deadly cover-up of their flawed automobile and a grieving family’s struggle for justice against huge odds, “The Memorandum: A True Story of Justice Forged from Fire” is an extraordinary and unreservedly recommended read. While very highly recommended for both community and academic library collections, it should be noted for personal reading lists that “The Memorandum” is also readily available in a paperback edition (9781947779143, $18.95) and in a digital book format (Kindle, $9.95).”

Midwest Book Review

“This compelling book is required reading for any true trial lawyer. It is an incredible testament to unswerving belief in a client’s cause and what it can take to slay a corporate giant. Bravo to Bob Kelley and his team for their work on behalf of their clients and for writing this truly inspirational and life-affirming book. I literally could not put it down and I read the entire book in one sitting.”

“From the first page, I couldn’t put down The Memorandum, the shocking true story of a small law firm’s fight for truth and justice against General Motors and their army of unethical lawyers and executives. This book left me in awe and cheering for the good guys and their incredible courtroom victory in the face of insurmountable odds.”
