I thought the book was absolutely great. It is an excellent guide to the bright eyed brand new lawyer, and a refresher course for us old heads. I wish I had this at my finger tips over twenty years ago when I first started my practice. Great job.

–Douglas Evans, Major Felony Trial Lawyer Washington and Maryland

I wish this book had been available when I was starting my law practice. Chris Shella shares the lessons that I learned the hard way as I was building my own law firm. From recommendations on technology and how to handle your calendar to managing your money, Shella’s practical advice will teach you how to build a practice that will earn you a substantial income while working for yourself.

–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.

–Kim Lott, Law Student Raleigh NC
