California Family Law Paralegal Book Released – Choosing California Lawyers & Attorneys Guide

OK, I know nothing about California Family Law, California Lawyers (other than one that was my roommate and good friend as an undergrad back in the 1970’s.) So why I am featuring this announcement here? The author’s publisher is also my publisher, Lynne DeVenney’s (Practical Paralegalism),   Workers Compensation for Paralegals, publisher,  so I assume it must be good! Also, I’ve used other Carolina Academic Press books as textbooks for my classes with much success – presently teaching a National Security Law course based on CAP’s National Security Law. Anyway, if you are a California paralegal with any interest in California Family Law, my bet is that this is worth checking out:

California Family Law Paralegal Book has been released by Dianna L. Noyes for Carolina Academic Press Publisher in 632 pages.
