Handling Traffic Cases in South Carolina, Fifth Edition by Ronnie M. Cole, James B. Huff and Candice K. Lapham

Valuable resource of the week

S.C. Family Lawyer's Toolkit, Second Edition is exactly what its name implies: a practical handbook and quick reference for the family law trial attorney. Its short, concise format contains easy-to-read pages that allow you to focus on listening to your witness instead of flipping pages to find your next trial question. As an added bonus, each book comes with the complete text on CD, letting you print only what's necessary for your next court hearing.
