“Much of what lawyers do in practice requires the exercise of professional judgment in the face of uncertainty: governing principles can be murky, and factual contexts vary widely. This book is designed to assist lawyers in assessing risks and making informed judgments about their professional obligations using all the relevant aspects of the law of lawyering.” From the Introduction to The Law of Lawyering in Washington

If you practice law in the state of Washington, this book should be part of your reference library. This one-volume treatise provides a broader and deeper treatment of the law of lawyering in the state of Washington than is currently available in any other work. The multiple sources of the law of lawyering are compiled, placed into  historical and national context, analyzed and  – where the authors deem it necessary – criticized in the “Author’s Commentary” sections.
