What The Reviewers Are Saying

I don't know if many lawyers have a sense of humor, but those who do will enjoy the book How to Hire a Honest Lawyer and other Oxymorons by Mel S. Martin, J.D. (Witty Books, $ 9.95 plus $ 3 shipping - P.O. Box 57524, Murray, Utah 84157-0524). Martin is a successful attorney in the Salt Lake City area where he has practiced law for more than 20 years. His book is a meaningful hilarious guide to selecting an attorney.

He observes, "If you can't laugh at lawyers, who can you laugh at?" Don't dare hire an attorney before you read this valuable book. It covers numerous aspects, including ways of testing a lawyer, and is able to combine humor with sensible guidelines. Martin's comments regarding an attorney who guarantees success is a gem in jurisprudence. His Glossary is too good to miss so here is a sample: Lawyer: A professional person who couldn't get into medical school. Tort: A wrong that consists of a breach of duty rather than a breach of contract; also a  French pastry. Retainer: Something worn by the attorney's kids to keep their  teeth straight. Stay: When a judge wants to suspend action, he orders a stay; a command given to pets and teenagers to accelerate action. There are many more.

How to Hire an Honest Lawyer makes it easy to choose the best attorney for your particular problem without having the attorney become your problem. The volume is also an ideal gift, even for lawyers. (Sid Ascher, Sid Ascher's World, The Current, December 27, 1996).
