About Us

Are you reading this at 2 a.m. from an office the size of a crouton, wondering why you went to law school in the first place?  Or maybe it’s 4 p.m. on a Saturday and you need a break from doc review before your head explodes. Then again, maybe you’re still in law school and figuring out what this whole lawyer game’s about in the first place.  Or maybe you just need a laugh.

Welcome, then—you’re at the right place. Founded by NYC-based writer and entertainment lawyer Maria de Cesare, Sweet Hot Justice gives a down-and-dirty, entertaining inside look at BigLaw and beyond. We get it. We’ve been there. We’re still there. And we’re here to make life a little more interesting for you. Look around and you’ll find some dish, some advice, some news, all served a little hot, a little sweet—just how we like it around here.
