Practice Manual


E. Lee Schlender, an accomplished trial attorney and author, has written a thorough and masterful primer for trial lawyers, aiding both their preparation for and trial of complex lawsuits. The book's primary focus is on medical malpractice. Reading the Chapter Titles alone provides one with an invaluable checklist extremely useful and applicable to many other types of litigation. It is a valuable handbook for attorneys with all levels of prior experience in medically related litigation.

The book is splendidly written in a terse, down to earth style, scrupulously documented, all designed to quickly eliminate hours of the practitioner's time in research.

As a trial lawyer of fifty-five years' experience (seven of which included serving as a Justice on the Idaho Supreme Court) I am pleased to recommend this book as a "must have" for the library of trial lawyers practicing in any of the fifty states in America.
