One of the things this book does is develop instant credibility with clients. Clients love the book. Divorce in North Carolina has also brought us new clients. Also, I received Continuing Legal Education (CLE) hours for my work on the book. We post information about the book on our website. We can also pull information from the book for posting blogs.
I think that the real value of the book is that it inspires confidence and credibility in potential new clients. I have had clients choose our firm, instead of others, because of the book. New client shave commented that they saw the book and that was the thing that caused them to pick our firm. I am sure that this has caused our firm to be retained by dozens (or more) of new clients that may not have picked us otherwise.

Anyone who authors a book automatically earns a credibility badge. I donated a copy of the book to every library in my state and to this day, I still have clients call me because they found the book there. I also give copies out to clients when they come for a consultation. No one has ever said they didn’t like getting something for free.
The book is a great way to market yourself as an expert in your field. I also got a lot of press coverage when it released. I spoke about the book on TV, on the radio, and in newspapers. I sought these opportunities out and a new book release is the perfect time so I would suggest leveraging that when the book drops.

As a busy practicing attorney, the thought of having to add writing a book to my list of things to do was at first overwhelming. Where were members of my firm going to find the time to write a book? As it turned out, it was very manageable. The format for the book was Q & A which meant we could draft here and there, when we had time. Addicus Books was very supportive and encouraging and when we had to move a deadline because of unforeseen circumstances, they were understanding. I would encourage any attorney thinking of working with Addicus to do so.

Rod Colvin and his team at Addicus Books made a huge difference in the book-writing process. I have authored a few books, and they tend to be excruciating enterprises, but Addicus Books made the process faster, smoother, and a whole lot less frustrating than my other experiences indicated was possible. It was a pleasure to work with folks who did what they said they would do, when they said they would do it, and with none of the unpleasant surprises that tend to pop up in such projects, while helping us complete a product that we were proud to have our name on. Kudos to the team at Addicus!

Working with Addicus Books made what first appeared to be a daunting task much more fun, interesting, and simple that I could have thought possible. Having written a book before, I was reluctant to undergo that process again, but their enthusiasm about their method and their product was infectious. They delivered on every single promise and commitment and were always open to suggestions that could make the book reflect better on everyone. I am quite proud to have my name on the cover of this book and all of my partners are pleased with the investment we made.

The book is great for marketing purposes. We have been wonderfully busy, and I have added two more associates since the book came out. Our clients really seem to like it, and it has truly enhanced my professional profile locally. I have had judges who have bought the book as an overview and refer to it as well. I also hand out the book when I am asked to speak. For a couple of networking organizations, I donate it for the swag bags for the speakers. All the feedback has been positive. I am very, very pleased overall.

This book was my first foray into writing a book, and the process was made much easier with the support and assistance of Rod Colvin and his team at Addicus Books. Although my co-author and I had the knowledge of the subject matter, we definitely were not familiar with all the procedures involved in getting a book published and distributed. The process was rewarding, and I’m now proud to say I’ve co-authored a published book. I thank Rod Colvin and Addicus Books—they did everything they promised they would do.

The publication of my book has created a whirlwind of publicity for our firm. Suddenly, I have been featured in local magazines (as best attorney), local radio, and even nationally syndicated radio. Clients have appreciated receiving a copy of the book and it has locked in several who may not have otherwise retained attorneys in our firm. On top of all this, working with Rod Colvin and Jack Kusler was a true pleasure.

Just the thought of writing a book was daunting, but Rod Colvin and Jack Kusler of Addicus Books were true mentors, coaches and facilitators, who helped us get us to the finish line. I doubt anyone could have done more to ensure our success. My co-author and I will be forever in their debt. Our reward is a professionally published work, which is helping our clients as they struggle with getting their lives back under control after divorce. Our clients love the book!

We certainly chose the right publisher for our book. Addicus Books as there to guide us, assist us, and even instruct us when we needed it. Rod Colvin and Jack Kusler actually made the entire experience enjoyable. We are so pleased with the finished book, and our clients are most impressed. We’ve even had fellow attorneys ask us how we found the time to write a book, and they are so amazed at the content and the quality.
