Television legal analyst and attorney Lisa Green offers something new: a witty, direct and empowering legal guide for women, filled with accessible information they can employ to understand and respond to common legal issues throughout their lives, from dating, marriage, and kids to jobs, retirement, aging parents, and wills.

 

Here's what we learned from Lisa today: 

 

Don't "Crowdsource" your advice, especially legal advice.

 

You may not need a lawyer for a divorce.

 

Her book, "On Your Case" is a practical legal guide. She calls it "The Joy of Cooking" of law.

 

It is a "legal guide for every stage of a woman's life" but is practical advice for men as well (just take the cover off, no one will know.)

 

Hear how she used her own advice (from the book) to find a lawyer for her mother.

 

Judge Judy recommends her book!
