–Rob McKenna, New Solo Lawyer, Atlanta, GA
As a law student who is terrified about the current job market, this was a welcomed resource for figuring out how to make a living if I don’t get a job right out of school. I was grateful for the practical advice on how to get started, especially how to get put on lists that get you cases from the state. I am interested in doing defense work, so that part was especially helpful. Overall, I appreciated the very practical nature of the book. It’s exactly what I need and appreciate. The cautionary tales part was great, especially about judges.
