Tony Serra - Tony Serra


Tony Serra: The Green, Yellow and Purple Years in the Life of a Radical Lawyer ($15.00) is a Chromatic, metaphoric autobiography of Tony Serra’s defense of Black Panthers, S.L.A., New World Liberation Front, Nuestra Familia, Earth First, Hells Angels, Mafia and Native Americans, intertwined with his anti-establishment ideology: written by Tony Serra while in Federal Prison for tax resistance.

“Forgive my romanticized and self-indulgent propositions in the forthcoming pages. Recall that such were written at Lompoc Federal Prison camp during my incarceration for U.S. tax resistance. I was not purporting to document case histories. You can find those references on the internet,. Mine is not a quest for accuracy. Mine is a flight into whimsy and caprice, a retrospective twinkle in the eyes of memory: In short, confinement escapism.” - J. Tony Serra

“Watching Tony in action is one of the reasons I became a public defender. As a new trial lawyer, I tried to emulate Tony. I had heard that he used to lick the railing at the Hall Of Justice (or “Injustice” as it is sometimes called) between the first and second floor so he could absorb the souls of all of those defendants who have walked that stairway to meet their legal destinies. I couldn’t bring myself to do it and whenever I lost a case, I would think to myself, ‘Tony Serra would have won that case.’” - Jeff Adachi, San Francisco Public Defender
