Challenge Accepted WRITE A BOOK?

Emily Dickinson once said, “There is no Frigate like a Book,” and I hope my new book will transport you — to a world where you have all the information you need about your personal injury case. It’s called “The Essential Guide for Your Texas Injury Case.” Getting that book written means a big task on my to-do list has been checked off, and it’s also given me the confidence to keep working on a few other writing projects.

Unlike many of the people I went to law school with, I wasn’t born into a family of lawyers. That means I never grew up thinking the law was easy to understand. In fact, it was quite the opposite: I wanted to provide people with a free resource that could help them understand their case, written by someone who used to find legal matters confusing and intimidating himself. The book tackles many frequently asked questions, as well as a few important things that people haven’t ever asked me but should. I also walk you through the personal injury process, from the first call to

writing that works for me — it includes a lot of editing — and I feel like the result is pretty good.

Having discovered a way to write, I’m now very excited to continue writing other books. I have two others in the pipeline right now. The first is all about car accident cases, which, as you can imagine, affect many of the people I deal with every day. The second book, which I’ve been working on for a while, is called “The Mental

It’s not a question of good or bad attorneys, but one of areas of expertise, experience, and client-attorney compatibility. If your case involves a legal issue that is not what I do or you may just be a better fit with a different lawyer or law firm, I want to make sure that your needs are met. I want to introduce you to the right lawyer for your case. I’m not a naturally great writer, so getting this book done was a challenge in the best possible way. I had a lot of trouble with writer’s block because I’d sit down to write and then ask, “Am I explaining this correctly? Am I getting my point across?” Funny enough, the process of doing that has made me a better speaker as well. I found a process for

Edge.” To create it, I collected lessons that I learned in basketball, in court, and from studying personal development. I hope to present those principles of success in a way that will help other people benefit. If you’d like to check out my first book, head over to my website (buttonlawfirm.com) and get a copy for free. It’s worth the time — especially if you have a personal injury case of your own.

Have a great start to fall,
