"Booklist"

"Transforming Practices" explains how you can reconnect with the spiritual side of law practice and place more emphasis on your clients'--and your own--emotional and spiritual needs. Now includes a new foreword by Jan Schlichtmann, who attained national prominence with the release of Jonathan Harr's "A Civil Action," which later became a movie starring John Travolta.
