Editorial Reviews

California Law Center on Long Term Care
...a useful tool for family members and friends. It provides ciritcal information on conservator�s duties and responsibilities ...Recommended for anyone considering becoming a conservator.
Laurie Levenson
A well written, helpful guide for laypersons interested in their legal rights—straightforward, non-intimidating and informative.
Roger Cossack
This easy-to-understand book contains everything you need to know about criminal law. Indispensable for anyone who wants to understand exactly what goes on in a criminal case.
Library Journal - Library Journal
An excellent and balanced guide to the state court criminal justice process, this book does not detail the differences of being charged in federal court, such as federal sentencing guidelines. Authors Bergman (Reel Justice, LJ 6/1/96) and Berman-Barrett, also a criminal attorney, use a question-and-answer format to cover cases from police investigations through appeals. The book is not intended to replace legal advice, and the authors stress the importance of obtaining representation, unlike Michael Saeger in Defend Yourself Against Criminal Charges (LJ 10/1/97), a recent, inferior guide. A worthy addition to all libraries that will instruct those interested in the criminal justice system.Harry Charles, St. Louis
