Psilocybin Mushroom Legal Defenses is a practical legal guide designed to help defense attorneys win acquittals in psilocybin mushroom cases. It relies on two legal arguments: first, that there are no laws specifically prohibiting possession of psilocybin mushrooms in 46 of the 50 states; second, that the use of these mushrooms for spiritual purposes is an exercise of religion, and therefore protected by the First Amendment. The book includes a model opening statement and final argument, and shows how to refute the "material/container" argument that the prosecutor will use. All the background information needed for a strong defense is provided. Aside from the legal arguments, the book contains a wealth of interesting information about psychedelics, including the results of the most recent scientific studies.

ANATOMY OF A CRIMINAL INDICTMENT by Michael Keehn is both a true story and a guide for the individual under an indictment, what to expect, and what those under indictment can do to help themselves survive the indictment. The author was under indictment for three years and very proactive in his own defense. The author shares his experience with the reader who is seeking guidance in becoming proactive in his (or her) own defense. The book gives sufficient background information for the reader to follow and visualize the path the author traveled to indictment. In short, the author spent eight years of his life designing a never before existing control system for a public utility that resulted in an indictment. It is likely that your attorney will seldom communicate with you in the early stages, this is normal and will be explained. But it does not mean that you cannot communicate to him, and do so in a way that will have lasting impact. Being under an indictment and charged criminally is a very lonely world. You may well feel like a leper, alone and isolated from everyone. You may find yourself avoiding friends because you don't want to tarnish their character with your own foul coating. In the author's case, he was surprised to find so many in his community to be very supportive, many of them people he did not know, but who recognized him from his picture from the newspaper and stopped to speak with him and offer moral support. In the beginning there was an initial distrust between defendant and attorney that slowly builds into trust. And this process can be seen as the story unfolds. Therefore, expect to be distrusted unless you are paying the attorney. Even then you may be distrusted, however, it probably won't be as easily detected. It was the author's experience that there is tremendous stress the individual under indictment must endure, not allowing emotions to render him (or her) immobilized, and although your defense attorney will probably not help with this issue, this book can help with that. The author also gives the reader solid examples how to analyze the various documents filed by government investigators. Putting the investigative reports and affidavits under a microscope, and then constructing a report is very beneficial, and an example of this process is provided. Following the suggestions for analysis and report construction can be therapeutic. It helps to relieve tension when, with a critical eye, you begin to see the errors and oversight the investigators are making. The book may also be used by a family member or loved one who wishes to help someone under indictment. Included are elusive and hard to find legal documents as examples to provide self help guidance for the pro se / pro per litigant.

An invaluable manual attorneys can use to help their clients achieve success.
The sad and tragic truth in the U. S. is that more than 50% of all first marriages end in divorce. Most divorces occur within the existing litigated court process, wherein the divorcing parties are almost required by the very nature of the adversarial process to become antagonistic to each other, waste time and money, and treat children as pawns in their power struggle. The physical, emotional, psychological, and financial costs of litigated divorce can be enormous. Now, there is another way: Divorce with Sanity. Richard S Rabbin, a respected Family Law Attorney who has handled countless divorce cases during the past three decades, has written a book that provides people seeking divorce with an entirely different approach to the divorce process. People can separate with dignity, self-respect, and cooperation. They now have the tools to escape the adversarial divorce process and create their own divorce rather than allowing the court to do it for them.

Cassin
We are described as a litigious society, where people sue at the drop of a hat. However, the truth is that it isn't all that easy for ordinary people to use the legal system to protect their rights. The system can be difficult to understand and offers many pitfalls for the unwary. It's a system of double standards and obstacles. However, it is still a system that affords a fighting chance if you know how to navigate its mazes and traps. And that's what this book is about. It's about acquiring the attributes and qualities that can enable a person to be successful as a plaintiff in our legal system. These qualities range from one's attitude to one's ability to analyze things in certain ways. It doesn't matter whether a matter involves personal injury, divorce, employment, disability, bankruptcy, or a business dispute. Certain traits and qualities tend to be exhibited by people who succeed in our legal system. This book is intended to teach you those qualities and to energize your confidence that the system does work... if you know how to use it to your advantage.

The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy marks the first time in the history of legal education that a novel has been used as a vehicle for delivering the content of a substantive body of law; in this case, a pervasive statutory scheme The Uniform Commercial Code, law in all fifty states. Mirroring the factual assumptions upon which the UCC was drafted, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy places the application of these laws in concrete and interesting commercial settings where they come to life. Logical reader questions are anticipated, and answered through a variety of communication channels uniquely available to the format chosen: dialogue, memoranda of law, texting and emails, are illustrative. If you are in business, the Uniform Commercial Code directly, impacts your business hundreds, perhaps thousands of times per day. Virtually every phase of a transaction in goods, from sale or lease through financing, is impacted by the laws of the UCC. Of particular significance are those provisions which can literally save a business from going under. These potential landmines need to be identified before they are stepped on. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy accomplishes this important task. Consumers should understand the basic laws the surround and govern their purchases leases and financing of goods. They should also understand, as should businesses, the impact of signing a promissory note, how the transfer of that note can affect one 's rights, and how to protect one 's rights when promissory notes are executed. Understanding how to protect your rights in these transactions is both empowering and essential. The mass and complexity of the Uniform Commercial Code has made comprehension and learning the content very challenging. The ease of learning is greatly enhanced by the approach utilized in The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy. As one prominent attorney and author wrote in a recently published book review: Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus In this case, he comes in the form of former University of Miami School of Law professor Robert M. LeVine, who has made one of the most complicated bodies of law in the United States the Uniform Commercial Code not only comprehensible but entertaining. Tom Shuck, Esq. Past President, Federal Bar Association Federal Bar Association Journal, August 2111 Law students, business students, and CPA 's must know the Uniform Commercial Code. It is essential to graduate from law school and is on the bar examination of every state, and the CPA examination as well. The following are illustrative of testimonials received on The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy: It 's true. The UCC is just as daunting as it looks, and this book is the key to unlocking its mysteries. Infused with practicality, The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy combines every day transactions with straightforward law, allowing students to not only navigate the UCC with ease, but also develop a lasting understanding of the material. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy 's revolutionary approach to the UCC has extensive application both in and out of the classroom as a resource for professors and a study aid for students. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy by LeVine was my key to success in understanding the UCC, and enjoying it Melissa Carroll Stetson University College of Law I was amazed. I never thought it possible to make the UCC interesting but I was wrong. For once I had found a book which made me understand the meaning and interrelationships among sections, and at the same time, I enjoyed reading it. F. William Harvey JD, MBA, Wharton School of Business The knowledge contained in the Uniform Commercial Code is invaluable to anyone in business, or any American who is involved in basic consumer transactions. The Uniform Commercial Code Made Easy creates a pathway to this level in a unique and entertaining manner.

The 'do' and 'don't do' information in this book isn't in any law school textbook: it can only be learned here, or the hard way, by painful personal experiences.
