Reviews - What do customers think about Start Your Own Law Practice (Startup Series.)?

What a Joke  Jun 14, 2008
I bought this book a few days after actually opening my own practice thinking that it would contain at least some valuable information. Having read through it now, I am upset that I wasted my money. Not only are there no specific recommendations anywhere in the book, it is poorly organized, more anecdotal than informative, and worst of all the author makes recommendations that would likely be considered malpractice in most jurisdictions. For instance on page 68 she comments that "Library research takes time, but it's time better spent than surfing the web or a legal search engine for relevant cases." In the jurisdictions I am familiar with failing to shepardize cases on a computer would be considered malpractice, not even considering the ethical implications of charging for research time in the library vs time on Westlaw / Lexis.

All in all I not only wouldn't recommend this book, but feel like I have just wasted two hours reading it.
not really much there  Oct 11, 2006
If you are only looking for a general overview of how a law practice is started, then this book would be okay. But if you want to get any real substance on how to do it, you will have to look to some of the other books on the subject. While this book gives a little useful advice from time to time, it is really too short and superficial to be of much help. The book is 114 pages, and really it is shorter than that if you don't count the index and the extra space taken up by how many of the pages are laid out. This is really more like a long article than it is a book.
Short and to the point.  Feb 18, 2006
Although not a comprehensive planning book, it certainly covers a number of helpful highlights on the subject. If it helps, Foonberg's take on the subject would be considered the "bible" while this is more of a "cliffnotes" version. All in all, it is a nice, quick read but it shouldn't be your main source of information.
