Why Lawyers Suck! Hacking the Legal System, Part 1



"It is riveting! I couldn't stop reading it!!! ... your sense of humor had me laughing just when my shoulders and neck was tensing over the heavy, intense legal parts. Can't wait to finish it!! and then wanting part II." - Gabriella


"Fascinating introspection on the legal profession. This is a must read for anyone approaching a legal hassle." - NS


"If you have ever been represented by a lawyer, I would bet that you wish you had read this book first. If you need to be represented by a lawyer you must read this book first. If nothing else, this book could save you thousands of dollars in legal fees. Better yet, this book may help you come to your senses and not even bother diving head first into a losing cause. . . ." - Martin K.

About the Author


Melody A. Kramer is a lawyer with 20 years of experience in and out of courtrooms, from small claims to federal circuit appeals courts, in states spanning from California to New Hampshire. She has won trials and lost trials, known the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat, and along the way, written hundreds of thousands of pages of documents filed with the courts.  She knows how to tell a story, whether in a legal brief or to a jury.

She is the ideal author for this particular project because she both has attention to detail and likes to stretch the boundaries of thought and possibility in her writing. See other writing samples:

“Confessions of an Adrenaline Addict and Trial Lawyer”

“The Tweet-Up Virgin Has An Epiphany”

Quantity vs. Quality: The Billable Hour Mousetrap”

Pedigree vs. Quality Revisited – Dogs and Lawyer Resumes Have a Lot in Common”
