Dave Simon has constructed a terrific resource that should be helpful to lay persons and professionals alike. Easy to access and compact, its the tool to reach for when legal terminology must be clarified. Great price, too.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have for Every Lawyer! April 29, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a lawyer I find this dictionary to be a great resource. All the legal terms you need right at your fingertips, in an easy-to-find format, and at such a reasonable price. I also intend to purchase a copy for my daughter who is in law school, it will be perfect for her as it would be for any law student. If your a lawyer this is a must have resource!

Format:Kindle Edition
I don't do a lot of reviewing. I bought this book because one from one of our interns had it and I just liked the simplicity and the way it is laid out. I keep it open on my computer (I have it as a pdf.) Also the fact that it is almost free should be a major selling point.
David Simon ( i am assuming he is the same guy) also had (has) a simple book about taking law exams that helped me gain about 15% on every test I took in law school. This was a long time ago so it may not be the same author, but if you are a student you should see if you can find a copy of it.
You should buy it, don't worry, it's worth the three bucks.

5.0 out of 5 stars The New Millennium Law Dictionary by David Simon April 12, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
As a "non-lawyer" I find this distionary very easy to use. I downloaded it on my laptop and passed it on to my daughter-in-law to review. She works as a Financial Planner at Fischer Investments and has occasions to interprete documents that contain law terminology. It will make her job easier. It is good to have everything in one place and easy to retrieve when needed.

Who doesn't want to know what all those Latin references mean in lawyer lingo? This is a great little lexicon of law speak for non-lawyers and the price is a definite bargain. Quid pro quo!

5.0 out of 5 stars For Lawyers and Laypersons Alike May 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not a lawyer, but consider myself to be a savvy layperson. There are often times in my day-to-day dealings with personal business matters, or in assisting family members with theirs, that I find myself referring to Dave Simon's New Millennium Law Dictionary to ensure my accuracy in legal terminology. I appreciate the fact that the volume is thorough, yet concise, enabling me to navigate it easily. Law dictionaries can be daunting, but this one is inviting. Sometimes I actually find myself continuing to peruse entries on a page after I've already gotten the information I was seeking, just for the sake of further interest. And occasionally I stumble upon an amusing tidbit, such as the "Cattle Rustling" entry. I guess even in today's world, the crime of stealing cattle still warrants a place in the legal lexicon. I like the fact that this book is saved as a pdf file on my computer, so it is readily at my fingertips when I most often need it - while I'm working on my computer!
