By David G. Greer

He was not a model of personal or professional ethics, had a nose for a fee, and a slight disregard for the clients who retained him. His retentive mind could recite classics at length. His quick wit, Irish charm, and aggressiveness captured a jury's attention and seduced or manipulated it for the desired result. Clarence Darrow tried to get Egan to join him in practice in Chicago. But Egan was happy in Dayton from Day One, where to the end of his life, he is reputed to have collected his fee at the start of each trial day, walking away from the client mid-trial if the client didn't pay.

No Dayton attorney created better fodder for stories than Jack Egan and no Dayton attorney is better at telling them than David Greer.
