Publishing information.

I have written a book and am having a difficult time finding a publishing lawyer in my area. This is a memoir and I have included people in the book that may not be happy that I did. What is my responsibility to those people?

This is something we may be able to assist you with.  We do service your area and we have provide many E services for convenience.  

In terms of your question, what you've said and the particulars around that generally determine whether you should have concerns.  Your responsibility to them would also be dictated by what the actual statements are.  

Generally a publishing lawyer would read the entire book then provide you with their opinion regarding certain chapters/sections/statements.  This is something we could assist you with.  If cost is a concern, we do have students and other qualified professionals that could do the first review, then have a final review done by counsel. 

We do offer free initial consultations and would welcome the opportunity to speak with you.  Please contact us via email at and we can arrange a time for us to call you, or email correspond about this further.
