Overview

I Love A Lawyer provides children with a positive overview of the job of a lawyer. Through its bright, cheerful illustrations, the book shows children that in addition to going to court, lawyers spend much of their time learning about the law through reading, writing, researching, and meeting with people.

I Love A Lawyer also shows kids the various environments in which lawyers work including tall buildings, small offices, and even home offices and describes some of the many beneficial things lawyers do for our world: from helping children and the elderly to protecting our environment.

Ms. Freedenthal wrote I Love A Lawyer when she realized that children were hearing "lawyer jokes" as early as kindergarten. She hopes to "pre-empt" some of those jokes by showing children that lawyers are regular people who do many good things. It is a must read for every child with a lawyer in his or her life!

About the Author

Michele (Shelly) Freedenthal was born in Connecticut in 1963. She moved to Houston, Texas in time for kindergarten, and lived there until she left for the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania in 1981. After receiving a B.S. in economics, Shelly moved to Binghamton, New York, where she worked for IBM for one year. During that time, she met Jim Hughey, who is now her husband of nearly 15 years. After IBM, Shelly completed a joint degree in law and public affairs at The University of Texas in Austin. In 1990, she began her career as an employment lawyer at Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker LLP in Los Angeles, and has been there ever since.

In 1994, 1997, and 2000, Shelly and Jim welcomed three wonderful children into their home: David, Sarah, and Jonathan. After seeing and hearing so many negative portrayals of attorneys, Shelly decided that she wanted to write a book that showed children the many beneficial and positive things that lawyers do. I Love A Lawyer is that book!
