The benefits of eService are many. Today we can enjoy the obvious benefits of saving time and trees, and the lesser-known benefit specific to California where eService simplifies calendaring (see https://www.litigationbythenumbers.com/eservice.html). January 1, 2018,...
Last year Assembly Bill 1973 amended Gov. Code § 6700 to create a new California holiday on the fourth Friday of September, to be known as Native American Day. The intent was to raise the status of the holiday from a yearly proclamation to an official holiday;...
“Litigation By The Numbers is one of the most valuable resource books in our firm’s library. Not only is it an excellent reference book for the legal secretaries and paralegals in my office, but for our attorneys as well. I highly recommend this book!”
Elise Dresser, CCLS, Legal Secretary, Newton Remmel, Mountain View, CA
“Although I have been a legal secretary for over 20 years, I know how quickly rules can change and your book is a LIFE SAVER!! I LOVE LITIGATION BY THE NUMBERS! THE MOST USEFUL TOOL ANY LEGAL SECRETARY CAN OWN!”
Penny Anderson, Legal Secretary, Fontana, CA
“I’ve been a litigation attorney for six decades, and only recently found LBTN. I was astonished at its thoroughness and simplicity. Several paragraphs of rules are presented in a simple table. If I had to do a court filing, it’s where I’d turn for format, required forms, eFiling, eService, and deadlines. I only wish I knew about it sooner!”
Richard H. Berger, Attorney, Los Angeles, CA
“I would highly recommend LBTN for anyone who wants to minimize the time necessary to get the staff up to speed on legal procedures.”
Steven G. Mehta, Attorney, Los Angeles, CA
“Even as a paralegal with over 13 years of experience, LBTN is my first go-to source for anything litigation. I use it all the time! It’s definitely worth the investment for the book and the updates.”
Crystal Byrum, Paralegal, Law & Stein, Irvine, CA

Betsy Birdsall, Paralegal, Los Angeles, CA
“Thank you for writing this amazing book!! I loved it when I was a student at Santa Ana Community College, and continue to use it at the office. I’ve now chosen to use it in the Civil Lit class I am teaching at UCSB, and I am excited to share all of the great tools I learned from it.”
Michelle DeRoche – Paralegal and Instructor, UC Santa Barbara Paralegal Studies
“I’ve been meaning to follow-up with you, and inform you of how much I LOVE, and how much my students LOVED the books! Thank you for creating such AMAZING and PRACTICAL REAL “LIFE” textbooks.”
Laneshia Judon, Esq. – Instructor, Riverside Community College – Paralegal Studies
“I love LBTN! I turn to it constantly for answers that would take me hours of research to find otherwise! Other attorneys call with questions because I have the handbook, and they know we can find either an answer or a place to start inside! Because they always wanted to borrow it, they now have their own for themselves and their staff! Thank you for doing all the work for us!”
Tori Buckles, Attorney, Salinas, CA

Once I knew we had to work from home, I made sure I brought my Litigation By The Numbers home. I use it as my go to all the time. Thank you so much for creating this book, I truly love it!
Anna D’Angelo, Legal Assistant, Ontario, CA
I use [LBTN] regularly as a tool to clarify rules, training and confirming my interpretation of state court rules. It’s a soup to nuts set that should be in all law firm libraries and Calendaring Departments.

I wanted to personally thank you for providing a fabulous product all these years. You and your company are truly impressive.
Lorraine G. Woodwark, Attorney, Santa Barbara, CA
I love this publication. It seems to answer every question I ever have as well as the questions I look up for my co-workers. I’ve had it for about 2 years now and use it weekly. Litigation by The Numbers is by far the most thorough, concise, and effective publication I have ever used. Thank you!
Anonymous, Paralegal, Encino, CA
I really appreciate this reference material and use it frequently! Saves me the time needed to constantly check the various codes for updates.
Elizabeth Woods, Freelance Paralegal, Magalia, CA
Your publication was a life saver for me as in 2018, by default, I became the firm’s legal secretary. While I have been in the legal field for years as an administrator, I had never been a legal secretary responsible for calendaring, etc. I have referred to your documentation multiple times throughout the last 5 years and am not certain what I would have done without it!
