“direct, hard hitting and realistic… The purchase of Lorne’s book will not be maximized unless you go over it, turn the pages, appreciate it, and put it on your bookshelf in a handy place so that you can go back to it, time and time again. And when you go back to it, you can look at the chapters, get exactly to the point you want to be at, and read the key points again. I believe this book should be in every family lawyer’s tool box.”
From the book review “Reviewing the Best Book a Family Law Lawyer Could Read in 2017”, by Haig DeRusha, DeRusha Law Firm
“Settling Family Law Cases is a useful reference for all family law and related professionals — mediators, arbitrators, valuators, parenting coordinators, you name it — and is a book that not only should all of us ‘toiling in the vineyards of marital discord’ (per Walsh, J) acquire but keep on or near our desks. While it may well look good on the shelf, its utility is that much greater in hand.”
