“I love all the information on different places to use social media. Chapter 5 is, by far, my favorite chapter of the book!” – Jennifer Hamey, Esq.
“I must have read over a dozen of books on starting a law firm and they were either outdated or not very relevant. This book has definitely hit every aspect of starting a firm.” – Karima Gulick, Esq.
“I highly recommend Law Office on a Laptop! I am in my third year on my own and this really breathed fresh air into my efforts for my solo practice! Thank you! I got the digital copy, but since I found myself bookmarking a few pages, I will be ordering a hard copy for returning references! Easy read, but really meaty!” – Lisa Ann DiFranza, Esq.
“Hodder and Sturmthal adequately prepare any lawyer or recent law school grad to gather the tools and build their own practice. This is a must read for anyone thinking of going solo or anyone who has recently taken the leap to go solo. Five stars.” – Elizabeth J. Ferguson, Esq.
