                                                                                   In His Ex-Wife’s Defense

New Jersey attorney Eric Goldberg is back, and he’s up to his neck in the most emotionally-challenging and potentially difficult case of his career. When his ex-wife is charged with vehicular homicide and turns to Eric for help, he is forced to not only battle the burden of representing the woman whose infidelity led to the end of their marriage, but also faces the daunting task of representing the first person to be locally prosecuted under a law regarding texting and driving.

Eric’s varied emotions regarding his ex-wife and the stress of his internal conflict are further complicated when a former attorney trying to further his own political aspirations continuously publicizes the case, and by the fact that the Prosecutor handling the case is a very attractive young woman. At the same time, Eric is being pursued by a reporter who resembles a woman from his not-so-distant past. With all these distractions, will he be able to win the case for his ex-wife?

“Eric Goldberg - lawyer, lover, mensch - successfully defended himself the last time out.  But now he takes on a much more difficult client:  his ex-wife. Andrew Wolfenson spins another just-real-enough tale of the everyman lawyer to make you think, ‘Did this really happen?’ Sex, politics, criminal justice, and more sex.  Read on and be entertained.” - Henry E. Klingeman, Esq., Criminal Defense Attorney and former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the District of New Jersey

“In His Ex-Wife's Defense is an excellent legal thriller. The author hit the mark here. He combines an expert knowledge of the law and how things "really" work with a plot line that has more dips and turns than an Olympic Bobsled run. As for the ending - guaranteed that you will not see it coming. This page turner is a must read!” -  John W. Hartmann, Esq., Criminal Defense Attorney and Author of Jacket: The Trials of a New Jersey Criminal Defense Attorney

 “A novel should educate and not misstate … Andrew's books are refreshing because he does give the reader an accurate reflection of the legal system, right down to a realistic portrayal of the interaction between lawyer and client. I am impressed by his presentation and the ease with which he tells a story from start to finish.” -  John Paragano, Esq., Criminal Defense Attorney and former Municipal Court Judge (Union Township 1999-2005)
