Editorial Reviews

From Scientific American

Arron and Guyol detail the benefits and risks in contract relationships. Written in a tightly organized style, the book is organized by topic and interest area. You can focus on contracting as a process, as a contractor, or as a firm. Arron and Guyol lead you step-by-step through several "how-to" guides that will help determine your suitability for and compatibility with contract arrangements. If you're recent graduate, or a managing partner - or somewhere in-between - The Guide will help determine if contracting is right for you.

Review

This is a comprehensive resource aimed at both the contract attorney, and those considering using temporary lawyers. We know of no other resource which addresses this phenomenon in this level of detail. -- ABA's Law Practice Management Magazine

This is an excellent resource for a rapidly developing area of legal practice. It describes the history and context of contract lawyering, discusses ethical, tax and malpractice concerns, and includes charts, graphs, worksheets and five useful appendices. It even offers summaries of relevant state, local and national ethics opinions. Anyone contemplating becoming or hiring a contract lawyer should read this book.

Format: Paperback
What I liked about the book is that it dealt effectively with the questions about lawyer temping that I wouldn't have thought to ask and proceeded to answer them all. I also liked the step-by-step guide for marketing yourself as a contract lawyer. Best of all, tho, it's got sample forms and contracts and covers issues like malpractice insurance, independent contractor status and all the ethical issues involved with being a contract lawyer.

Format: Paperback
There are significant risks and benefits with contract lawyering arrangements. For those practitioners who are, or who may become involved in such arrangements, this book is an extremely useful and cost-effective tool in developing an awareness of several critical issues. The book is readable, without jargon, and does not fail to address a variety of problem areas, namely conflicts of interest, client consent, billing and professional malpractice liability coverage.

This is an excellent and thoroughly-researched resource for anyone considering entering into a temporary legal relationship, either as a contracting attorney or hiring attorney. It's well-organized and thoughtfully written, and one of the chapters even includes sample letters of engagements and retention agreements, a handy starting point for newcomers to the world contract lawyering.
