I have worked in a blue-chip, award winning commercial firm for 8 1/2 years. The firm runs skills workshops and business development seminars that explore the principles set out in your book, so nothing in the book was of itself new to me.

The benefit of reading your book, for me, lies in all those principles now interrelating in a profoundly meaningful way. You have synthesized the various messages I have taken on over the years into one package - a package that makes me appreciate the importance of approaching a client's experience of me in a deeply human way, rather than merely a polite and technically correct way.

I feel transformed in my outlook to lawyering and I thank you."

Thank you
 "Thank you for a great book. I am managing partner of an 8 lawyer firm and I thought your book so succinctly explained the concept of marketing for lawyers that I bought a copy for every lawyer . Now that I have digested it I wanted to explore your doing a seminar for our firm in Ottawa. Would you be interested in trying to teach a group of good lawyers to be great lawyers. "

Loved it

"Just wanted you to know I read your latest little book on Great Lawyering the other night and loved it! Every law firm should be handing those out to every summer associate and every new lawyer. The more I think about it, law firms should give them to every employee so they can understand what is important to the success of the lawyers they support, thus allowing them to help them more effectively. Anyhow...just wanted to touch base and let you know how much I enjoyed your words!"
