Reasonable Efforts: A Judicial Perspective by Judge Leonard Edwards

We are so pleased that Judge Edwards will be keynoting our Annual Conference this year.

He has recently published a book called Reasonable Efforts: A Judicial Perspective.  You can learn more about the book HERE.

We were able to get copies of the book to give to the first 50 attorneys who registered for the conference.

For those of you who didn't get one you can request a hard copy by contacting:

The book is also available for download in .mobi format for Kindle and .epub format for other eReaders.
