Editorial Reviews

Lynne Liberato
The best book in Texas for straightforward answers to legal questions that complicate our lives.
Judge Molly Maness-Barnes
This book keeps you well informed about your legal rights. This is good and bad for Judges. The litigants are better prepared and so dockets run smoothly... but .... we now have to be even better at what we do. When litigants come in quoting Richard Alderman, I know, I better really be on my toes.
Nancy B. Rapoport
In his latest edition of Know Your Rights!, Professor Alderman continues his tradition of giving the people of Texas a gift—the gift of understanding their legal rights and responsibilities. He demystifies the law and makes it user-friendly for the reader. This book is a must-read for the lawyer and non-lawyer alike.
"Judge" Larry Joe Doherty
This book is better than having a lawyer in the family. Know Your Rights! is more than just 'A little bit of knowledge' and not nearly as dangerous. READ IT. That's an order!
