How Not to Practice Law is the the perfect book and should be required listening for any law student, or new lawyer going out on his or her own, or with a law firm or government agency, especially before making a first appearance in any court of law - whether civil or criminal.
It separates what really goes on in the practice of law in real life from what is seen on the numerous popular law-oriented shows on television.
The 'do" and "don't do" information in this book is rarely found in any law school textbooks or classrooms and must be learned either with this book, or the hard way, by painful and embarrassing experiences that you should definitely want to avoid, because they can seriously affect your client's case, and you image in front of the trier of facts.
The material in this book was compiled by a combination of many interviews with experienced judges, trial lawyers, law firm partners, former jurors, and the author's years of experience working as a bail bondsman, law clerk with the District Attorney's office, being a trial lawyer for 20 years, and from working with numerous attorneys and teaching courses at a small private law school where he was an acting Dean and teacher of Legal Writing courses for students preparing for a State Bar Examination.
The main object of this book is to assist its listeners to avoid situations that may be used as negative examples in future updated editions of this book.
