The first edition of The Paralegal Survival Guide was in high demand for years, praised for being a great source of practical information. This Second Edition will serve as an up-to-date resource for substantive, procedural and practical information about some of the most common areas of legal practice in South Carolina. This attractive and affordable book and accompanying CD of over 130 forms represents a unique collaboration between some of South Carolina’s most talented and experienced attorneys and paralegals.

This book is designed to be a quick reference guide for the busy paralegal or attorney who needs a primer on an unfamiliar area of practice. Each chapter is written to provide a quick explanation of the law and procedure on that topic, as well as tips and pointers for more efficient and effective practice. (For the Second Edition, the authors included six new practice areas. Coverage of the book now includes: plaintiff and defense litigation, family law, probate practice, workers’ compensation, office administration, employment law, criminal law, administrative law, foreclosure law, intellectual property, elder law and ethics.) And one of the best things about this important book is that it is packed with sample pleadings, forms and checklists. All forms in the book are included in Word and WordPerfect on the accompanying CD.
