I want the reader to be informed, given the truth and allowed to make an intelligent and rational choice as to whether the legal profession is right for him or her
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (PRWEB) September 24, 2012
In his book “The Legal Lampoon: A Practical, No-nonsense Guide for Anyone Interested in Becoming or Hiring a Lawyer” (published by iUniverse) – which is getting a renewed focus on marketing – author Richard Icci gives readers advice about the path to becoming a professional attorney, offering insights into his own journey.
Icci draws from nearly two decades of experience as a lawyer, discussing the process of going from law school to becoming a member of the profession. “The Legal Lampoon” demonstrates the trials, tribulations and pitfalls of everyday life as a lawyer, working to overcome the Hollywood gloss that he sees as inaccurate and misleading. Icci explores basic economics as it relates to the profession, weighing the work required to become an attorney against what someone might expect to make in salary as a lawyer.
An excerpt from “The Legal Lampoon”:
“I will have achieved my purpose if… I convince those of you who thought you would become instant millionaires upon graduation from law school to save your money, as well as your sanity, and to pursue some other career.”
Icci hopes his book helps give readers better expectations about becoming a lawyer. “I want the reader to be informed, given the truth and allowed to make an intelligent and rational choice as to whether the legal profession is right for him or her,” he says.
“The Legal Lampoon” is available in paperback, hard cover and ebook wherever books are sold.
