Concluding a yearlong tour, Joseph Greenwald & Laake principal attorney David Bulitt will host a book signing for his most recent novel, Because I Had To, released in January 2017. The event, hosted Dec. 1 at The Avenue Inn in Rehoboth, Delaware, will allow attendees to meet David and discuss the book, which has received rave reviews from readers and reviewers alike, such as New York Times award-winning writer Lyric Winik and The Midwest Book Review.
The novel focuses on Jess Porter, who runs away to Florida to try to find herself following her father’s death and a difficult relationship with her adopted mother and twin sister. With the help of her father’s best friend, a successful divorce lawyer named Joe Becker, Jess embarks on a journey to find her birth mother, and in the process, find her true home. Told from dual points of view, the book gives readers inside views of adoption, teen therapy, family law and the search for a biological family.
David is a family lawyer and the assistant managing director of the firm in Rockville, Maryland. A principal in the firm, David’s practice focuses on complex family law cases, including divorces, custody battles and other contentious domestic conflicts. His first novel, Card Game, was published in 2015, and he is currently working on two other projects. Bulitt emphasizes that both of his careers are complementary and that the process of writing a book has helped him to become a more complete and passionate advocate for his clients.
