By J. Randolph Evans and Shari L. Klevens
I have been defending lawyers for 30 years and have seen the legal malpractice law change and progress. Your book not only provides lawyers working in the field of legal malpractice an excellent overview of the applicable law but it also provides them with an excellent update with respect to both the obvious and subtle changes to the law. I recommend it highly to all lawyers who practice in the area and I also believe lawyers in general would find the book both helpful and instructive.– H. Lane Young II, Hawkins, Parnell, Thackston & Young partner and a leading Georgia legal malpractice practitioner
