Law Firm Mismanagement

"After a hard day at the office, this book may help put
so-called serious matters into their more proper perspective."

Federal Bar News & Journal

This behind-the-scenes look at Kanter's mythical law firm, Fairweather, Winters & Sommers, includes pieces by the people who man (and woman) the firm's library, mailroom, word-processing center, and supply room, as well as the firm's administrator, proofreader, shrink, and chef. Secretaries and paralegals add their sides of the story, and associates take to the barricades.

The Fairweather firm's non-lawyers know better than anyone else how ridiculous lawyers can be. In our sample story, for instance, the receptionist tells how she can distinguish, say, an opposing attorney from a salesman.
