The lawyers profiled have jobs in governments, non-profits, and small private firms; both civil and criminal law are covered, including prosecutors and defense counsel. Some of the fields that the lawyers work in are civil rights, civil liberties, immigration, personal injury, and human rights.

The Essential Formbook Volume 1 (Table of Contents)
Gary A. Munneke and Anthony E. Davis
The purpose of this work is to help individual lawyers, and law firms of all sizes, accomplish a fundamental goal: to serve clients better. That may seem redundant—don’t lawyers always try to give good service? In our experience the answer to that question is both “yes” and “no.” “Yes” because lawyers aspire to give good service; “no” because the level of service even individual lawyers give to different clients often diverges greatly, whether in solo practice or in large, multioffice law firms. One client may receive optimum attention and quality at all times, while another may feel—and sometimes may be—neglected or, worse, ignored. This book is intended to help you structure and manage your law practice to achieve two fundamental goals: service to clients and making law practice profitable.

From Metropolis to Mayberry (1996) (Table of Contents)
Phillip C. Williams
Starry-eyed readers who may have bought the media myths about Mayberry, Cabot Cove, or any other small-town Shangri-la may be disappointed by my dwelling on the gloomier aspects of small-town life. Such readers should remember that the maxim “Watch your step” can be as useful in a cow pasture as it is on a crowded sidewalk. They should also keep in mind that life in a genuine small town—an elusive entity that I try to define in Chapter 1—simply may not be for them. The time to discover that is now, before you find yourself marooned in misery in Boondocks, U.S.A. Possibly what you want is a less drastic change of scene—a smaller city, for example, or one in what is to you more hospitable terrain. This book can help you find out. Part One is devoted to helping you make the elementary decisions: Do you want to live and practice in a small town? If so, where? Part Two lays out a few ugly truths about most small towns: don’t commit yourself to this lifestyle without knowing these facts.

Arndt, Ezra Tom Clark Jr., Richard Feferman, and Gerry Malone have fashioned an invaluable resource for all lawyers who practice law together as owners of a legal business.

Practicing Law in Small-Town America (2012) (Table of Contents)
Richard L. Hermann
Small-Town America is not what it used to be. The transportation and communications revolutions have spread the advantages and amenities of big cities into less populous regions--and in many cases, these regions are still very much underserved by the legal community. Moreover, housing is affordable, commuting to and from work is a non-issue, and school have fewer problems than their urban counterparts.
Practicing Law in Small-Town America, in three distinct and thorough parts, paints a picture of what small-town practice is like in its rich diversity, examines how local practitioners got to where they are, and details what an aspiring small-town lawyer needs to know and do in order to locate in--or relocate to--a small community. The book includes: Setting the Small-Town Practice Scene; Defining "Small-Town America?"; What's Different About Small Towns?; How Small-Town American and Law Practice Has Changed; Small-Town Practitioner Profiles; Many Diverse Types of Practice; Tradeoffs; Where to Locate; and What to Do When You Get There.
The book also includes appendices on what's out there, a small-town due diligence checklist, best and worst places to relocate, additional information sources and a thorough bibliography, and an in-depth look at the history of one of the representative towns featured in the book, Canandaigua, New York. Practicing Law in Small-Town America show you how to find and understand the factors--economic, social, demographic, political, legislative, technological, historical, domestic and international--that will impact your law practice and life.
Solo by Choice (2007) Table of Contents)
Back when you were in law school you had dreams…Maybe it was standing before a jury, passionately arguing on behalf of a desperate client…or winning an appeal that would link your name to a new legal precedent…or pulling off a dramatic 11th hour deal that would give your struggling technology client a life-saving infusion of capital. But what happened? Here it is two, five, eight, years out of law school—maybe more, maybe less—and most of those dreams are unrealized:You work 60-hour weeks in BigLaw, researching narrow legal issues for clients you never met, watching partners argue motions you drafted and which you know you could argue better given the opportunity.Or, you’re a government prosecutor or Justice Department attorney whose work is no longer challenging, but you can’t move up any higher without political connections.Or, you were let go from a firm because you weren’t partnership material, and now you’re temping at document-review jobs that barely pay the bills.Or, you enjoy your work but are plagued with guilt about leaving your children with a nanny five days a week.Or, you just passed the bar, and the prospect of paying off your student loans by slaving away the next seven or eight years on the chance you might make partner has you popping antacid in the middle of the night.This book is dedicated to every lawyer who ever wanted to run the show but worried that going solo was career suicide…every lawyer who wanted to solo but didn’t know how to set up the office and make it work…every lawyer who never set foot in a courtroom but dreamed of one day practicing law their way. In short, this book is dedicated to becoming the lawyer you always wanted to be.

Marc Garfinkle, Esq.
This book is for lawyers who want to work for themselves, even if they just passed the Bar last week.
