In addition, the book includes a number of quick mini-guides to legal troubleshooting that include information on understanding wills, trusts, and inheritance, granting someone a power of attorney, understanding contracts, what to do if youre sued, how to choose a lawyer, exploring law school,and enjoying cop and lawyer dramas.
