CAD's Bookshelf

This is part of my e-bookshelf. It changes from time to time. It's here for my convenience - because it's my bookshelf. If it's convenient for you too, I'm glad. But it's not legal advice. Every case is unique in some way - just like every client. If you'd like to be my client, I'd love to talk with you about that.

It might look cool in movies, but DIY legal work is not a great idea. Ever seen a surgeon operate on himself in real life? Even lawyers hire other lawyers (or plumbers; or mechanics) when they need help.

At most, these are publicly-available resources that might help you become a better-informed consumer of legal services. But whether you call me or someone else, be sure you talk to an attorney before you start trying to represent yourself.

Using my e-bookshelf doesn't make me your attorney any more than reading a book at the public library makes the librarian your attorney.

Part of Paragraph 6 in the Preamble to the Rules of Professional Conduct governing Kansas attorneys says:

"As a member of a learned profession, a lawyer should cultivate knowledge of the law beyond its use for clients . . .and work to strengthen legal education. In addition, a lawyer should further the public's understanding of and confidence in the rule of law and the justice system because legal institutions in a constitutional democracy depend on popular participation and support to maintain their authority."
