I have decided that I want to be a private defense attorney when I am an adult and so when I saw this book I got it immediatly. This book gives Q&A about a lot of topics and case examples. Anyone interested into knowing the law and your rights should read this book!
I have been able to use this book over and over again for my criminal justice and law classes to write papers, do discussions and and just get simple clarification on subjects I am studying. It is definitely a must have.
This book is excellent. It gives the same advice as what my current attorney is giving me. Would highly reccommend this book to anybody who wants to know their rights in any state they live in.
