David and Goliath in the Modern Court

Extraordinary Trial Experiences of a Lawyer in the Philippines


The legal profession is one of honor, respect and dignity – compensated not only with treasure, pleasure and honor but with the right to right a wrong. In David and Goliath in the Modern Court, author Virgilio J. Santiago provides insight into the Philippine justice system and the role of lawyer to attain truth and dispense justice not only in the Philippines but in all courts of justice, the primordial duty of courts of justice being to attain truth and dispense justice . As Santiago grew up in Manila, he had little ambition. His desires included becoming a driver, marrying his sweetheart, and living a simple life. It took an accident and a possible jail sentence to change his mind. On March 15, 1965, he realized his mother’s dream for him to become an attorney. In this memoir, Santiago recalls the highlights of his career and relates details of clients, cases, trials, and verdicts. David and Goliath in the Modern Court narrates Santiago’s quest to attain truth and justice, and it describes how courts in the Philippines traversed the labyrinth path of lies, fraud, and schemes to stop evil.
