Overview

Whats wrong with me?
My life and priorities seem irrelevant to the court.
Are you ensnared in the judicial system? Fearful, incredulous, isolated, beyond rage ¦feeling alienated? This unique book conjoins law, therapy, and research revealing a subtype of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder called Legal Abuse Syndrome. Legal Abuse Syndrome helps victims overcome psychological devastation caused by prolonged injustice. Through facts, graphics, and heart rendering vignettes readers grasp elements of this psychic injury, recognize its causes, and benefit from the therapeutic steps provided.
This book is a self-help tool for cumulative trauma. When systems of care, i.e. the judicial system, cause or exacerbate medical conditions due to extreme stress, the dilemma presents a public health problem as well as a multidisciplinary legal/medical professional challenge.
There is nothing wrong with you. You need a game changer that bolsters your resilience and confidence. Eight self-help steps guide you through the toughest times of your litigation illustrated by gripping cases of human courage and principle against the massive power of the judicial system. The people you meet in this book will encourage you. James case portrays civil court being skewed to cover up a felony while fraud on the court is recklessly used to hide the facts. The issues become twisted into a dizzying house of mirrors with lies taking on a life of their own in the courtroom.
When rage is exceeded in the human experience, one either explodes or implodes. Explosion usually results in violations of civility and law complicating the problem. Implosion leads to health consequences and bitterness. Legal Abuse Syndrome guides you toward an alternative that allows the victim to skillfully stay in the fight. Along the way, there are gifts in reviving the spirit of justice, a staple of a civilized society.

    Dr. Huffer's book, Legal Abuse Syndrome, is among the most outst

    Dr. Huffer's book, Legal Abuse Syndrome, is among the most outstanding self-help books I have ever read. It will become a life-saver for many readers. This book a "must read" for people living in the emotional abyss of anger, shame and outrage caused by Lawyers, Judges, and betrayal by the inept legal system the victims trusted for justice. Dr. Huffer's book is sheer brilliance - she is a pioneer who cued in on a poorly understood area of traumatic emotional abuse. As she explains, Legal Abuse Syndrome is a form of PTSD; it is inflicted upon trusting, conscience ridden citizens by members of the Legal System. She writes of Lawyers who betray and victimize their own clients, Judges who abuse their power with impunity, and the corruption inherent in our own Legal System.

    Dr. Huffer addresses the despair, frustration and rage of LAS victims, the adverse impact on their lives, the economic shambles they are left with, and long-term relationships lost by victims (due to neglect, shame, betrayal, and continued legal abuse by this form of PTSD.) Most important, Dr. Huffer offers solutions to sufferers she calls "the walking dead." She takes us through an eight step program towards healing. The reader will gain insight into his/her suffering, higher clarity, validation, and hopefully, be able to return to the person they once were, yet empowered for the future, after absorbing the knowledge imparted by Dr. Huffer.

    Dr. Huffer's book on LAS should become required reading for every Law School Student, and existing Lawyers, Court Officers and Judges. I cannot overemphasize the merits of this book - it is a lifeline offering a way out of the emotional prison of LAS sufferers.

    Thank God finally Dr Huffer took the bull by the horns.

    Every family has to get a copy especially those whom have experienced any legal abuse by our corrupt us court system. This dr who wrote this book is an answer to prayer and may God continue to bless and protect her. Please spread the word to help restore wounded souls.
