Product Description:
Covering the often frustrating process of researching and securing a law firm job and how to succeed once a job is secured, this is a mentoring guide for new lawyers at the beginning stages of their careers. It embodies a collective wisdom about the things lawyers wished they knew at the beginning of their careers, rather than the end. Subjects covered include traditional and creative job hunting, writing resumes and cover letters, first and second interviews, and developing relationships with firms as a summer associate. Using real-life examples, this reference also focuses on the ultimate goal of being a satisfied and fulfilled lawyer and discusses many of the daily workplace issues that new lawyers are often afraid to talk about-handling firm partners and assignments, courtroom etiquette, organizational tools, and dating within the firm.

Product Description:

Practicing law is hard work, and being a mom is even harder! Are you a mommy and a lawyer? Are your children struggling to understand what you're up to while you're at work? Are you juggling a demanding career and little ones at home? Feeling guilty when you can't be there for every special moment with your child throughout the day? If so, this book is for you!

Molly Bowen wrote Mommy Lawyer to teach her children about her career but, more importantly, to give herself and other mommy lawyers a tool to help children be more understanding and proud of the fact that they have a working mother.

After taking the time to teach them about her career through Mommy Lawyer, Molly discovered that her kids more supportive and less disappointed when she occasionally missed a special day at school or didn't make it home in time to tuck them in. Mommy Lawyer not only provides children with a basic understanding of what lawyers do, it helps children see their working mother's career in a more positive light.

If you're a mommy lawyer trying to balance it all, Molly hopes this book will empower you and your family to engage about your career - and the challenges that come with it - in an effective and beneficial way.

Mommy Lawyer is the first of a series of children's books dedicated to developing a more compassionate and supportive relationship between working parents and their children.

Rethinking your career strategy
Suggestions for nonlegal careers
Advice for dealing with the financial ramifications of leaving the practice of law
Real-life success stories


Lawyers have the highest depression rates, highest pressure, lowest popularity ratings, and the longest hours of almost any profession that exists. No wonder that according to a recent poll 70% of lawyers surveyed said they would start a new career if they could. If you are disillusioned by the realities of law practice or want to get into a different type of law, then you can start a new career. In Alternative Careers for Lawyers, you'll hear from many people who managed successful transitions: one of them is an NBC news anchor, another started her own bicycle tours company, and yet another built a $20 million attorney temp agency.

We'll show you how to manage every step of this uncertain yet ultimately liberating process:

Deciding whether to change careers or just switch jobs
Choosing which new careers to pursue
Re-tailoring your resume for non-legal careers like education, consulting, publishing, and sales and marketing
Networking, interviewing, furthering your education, and more

Product Description:

Get the inside scoop on what venture capitalists want to see in your start-up

Venture Deals provides entrepreneurs and start-up owners with a definitive reference for understanding venture capital funding. More than an overview of the process, this book delves into the details of the term sheet, the players, the negotiations, the legalities, and more, including what not to do. This new third edition has been updated to reflect the new realities of today's intricate start-up environment: You'll learn how the decisions are made, what every item on the term sheet means, what's up for negotiation, and what's not. You'll discover the secrets to expanding your prospects, negotiating the right deal for your company, and figuring out the right balance of funding versus control. You'll see the process through the eyes of the venture capitalist, the angel investor, the syndicate, and the lawyer and develop a strategy that makes funding your company a win for all parties involved.

This book is designed to help entrepreneurs succeed by bringing transparency to the venture capital funding process. Veteran investors walk you through the process from start to finish and beyond to help you:

  • Understand how venture capital funds work and how investors decide to invest
  • Learn effective negotiation tactics based on game theory
  • Delve into the meanings behind the term sheet's economic and control issues
  • Avoid common issues that sink deals at the seed, early, mid, and late stages

Written by the experts at Foundry Group, this unique guide is expressly geared toward those on the other side of the table; instead of parsing investor-focused advice and working backward, you get actual insider information on what the people with the money want to see. If you're ready to take the next step for your business, Venture Deals is an essential listen.

Product Description:
What if your boss wanted you to spy...on the U.S. government?

There is no job description and the job isn't advertised anywhere, not even on the Job Board at Georgetown Law. But Thaddeus Murfee just graduated from law school and has $200 left from his student loan. He is so broke he has to borrow his roommate's suit for his first job interview. While he is so desperate to earn rent and food money, he fails to nail down exactly what it is he'll be doing.



They tell him a U.S. Attorney is selling government secrets...But is he, really?

Thaddeus Murfee likes his new boss, the U.S. Attorney. Good things happen and gifts flow his way. What's not to like? The government lawyer even has a daughter he wants Thaddeus to meet. Were the people who hired him just totally wrong about the guy selling government secrets? What proof do they actually have of this serious accusation?



Meet the foreign agents who will pay top dollar for U.S. war plans...

This thrilling collection of good-lawyers/bad-lawyers will keep you up late at night. Beware: you might show up late for work. But when you get to work you just might find everyone talking about this new, exciting romp through the backstreets of Washington, D.C. On one side, a new, innocent lawyer just out of school. On the other side, the full force and might of the U.S. government. Watch from your front-row seat as it plays out and careers are built and ruined while lives are won and lost.



Buy Thaddeus Murfee today before it becomes a movie in 2017!
