I have to give a shout-out to my friend and fellow attorney, Amy Feldman and her comedy writer sister Robin Epstein, for their recently pulished book, So Sue Me Jackass: Avoiding Legal Pitfalls that Can Back to Bite You at Home, at Work and at Play
. The book is a useful guide to understanding many legal situations that happen to regular people written in very straightforward, engaging and humorous style. There are also a number of amusing stories used to explain various points. I particularly enjoyed Robin's story about interviewing for a certain type of job at an establishment in Nevada to get background information for a script she was writing. You will have to read the book to find out what was the job for which Robin applied.
As Amy makes very clear in the book, it is not a substitute for the services of a qualified attorney but it can help one to better understand certain situations and when one might need to engage an attorney.
