The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law (Paperback)
The "Curmudgeon" has been practicing law for just a little too long, and he may be too jaded for his own good. Beneath his crusty exterior, however, lies a fount of wisdom. The Curmudgeon knows everything about the legal profession, and now he's updated his previous ABA bestseller for our current times. This is everything you ever wanted to know about law practice but were afraid to ask. The Curmudgeon offers practical and honest, if blunt, advice for surviving and thriving in a law firm. He tells you what you need to know about billing, managing your assistant, drafting internal memos, dealing with clients, and building your law practice. Read The Curmudgeon's Guide to Practicing Law, Second Edition and learn how to make yourself valuable, prove to your firm that you are indispensable, and open the door to opportunity.
