    What planet does this guy live on?

    Foonberg suggests using a charity to cold call clients as a way to 'reach the people you want to reach?' (p. 176-7) And yet, just one page prior, he advises his readers not to join social, civic, or charitable organizations solely to get clients because 'members will see through you, and you won't get anything from them.' In other words, make sure you hide your self-interest behind a facade of altruism. Given the preponderance of the mentality behind this type of advice, it is difficult to understand why we lawyers still can't figure out why people think we're just a bunch of snakes. But there's plenty more where that came from, if you want to spend the $69.95 + tax.

    A Must-Have for All Attorneys

    This book is great!! It's rare to find a book that provides usefull information to all lawyers, and even more rare to find entertainment in reading a book on the practice of law. This book does it all. Even after 15 years in the profession, I found something new or useful on every page.

    Extremely Useful

    This is an extremely useful, readable and practical guide (with lots of helpful forms) - it is the bible for any lawyer thinking of opening his/her own law practice.

    A Must Have-- Practical Advice Without the Unnecessaries

    This is an excellent resource. I first reviewed this title in a law school library. It offers so much practical advice that it was obvious I needed it in my library. A must have for anyone embarking on beginning a law practice. My only regret is that I did not purchase it sooner!
