“100 Favorite California Family Code Sections” began as a short outline that I used to study the Family Code. I began to carry the 7 or 8 pages stapled together to court for just those pesky questions from the bench asking for specific authority.

Jim, thank you so much! This book is a a time-saver and the most comprehensive, quick guide available on the intricate and often times confusing array of California Family Codes. I can’t thank you enough for such a wonderful and comprehensive guide. Thanks again
