With each new edition, this popular primer on establishing a law practice keeps getting bigger. Weighing in at more than 600 pages, the Fifth Edition adds yet more content to a resource already considered a classic in its field. The book is organized into nine basic sections, each with numerous chapters: Getting Started, Getting Located, Getting Equipped, Getting Clients, Setting Fees, Managing the Law Office, Ethics and Professional Responsibility, Resources and Advice, and Quality of Life. The checklists, business plan template, sample forms and letters, and other illustrations add tremendously to the usefulness of this basic primer.
