“I have been doing this for 27 years. I wish that I had something like this when I was starting out. I would have made a lot more money and probably would have had clients that were more satisfied. My partner, a criminal lawyer, has listened to the marketing CD’s (4 of them) and also thinks they have given him a lot of new ideas.”
