Book Review: The Education of a Lawyer by Gary Muldoon

Gary Muldoon has published a new book entitled The Education of a Lawyer. Mr. Muldoon, who has been practicing law for over 35 years, is known for previous publications in the areas of criminal law and family law. His venture into something less serious is, in a nutshell, a pleasure to read.

These essays are stories not only of Mr. Muldoon's own experiences but those of family, friends, and acquaintances as well. Each essay begins with a situation and is concluded with advice or an opinion on what to do and what not to do when faced with specific circumstances.

The collection includes essays on deciding to enter and being in law school, searching for work, being in legal practice, writing and speaking, building and keeping relationships with colleagues and clients alike, improving oneself, and just living life in general.

I particularly liked his essays on “Dressing for Success” (as his wife “cringes at the thought of [him] advising anyone on what to wear”); “Practicing Law on the Cheap”; and the whole chapter titled “In Life.”

Lawyers and non-lawyers, experienced or not, will find Gary's collection of essays informative and, at the very least, entertaining.
