Linda Fox, Placerville
"For a paralegal, new attorney or student of the law, it is an excellent resource and falls into the KISS category of book — keep it simple stupid."

Diane Rames, student, Cal State East Bay Paralegal Program
“Great book. Used in in my civil lit class for paralegals at [American River College]. Definitely recommend it. … Your book made it much easier, as it was laid out perfectly for a novice to follow through and learn. I think that I have notes and highlights on every page. I have it on my bookshelf and have referred to it in some of my other paralegal classes.”
Alan Bell, student, UC Berkeley Paralegal Program
“Litigation By The Numbers is the legal secretary’s bible!”

Mary Ann Edwards, Sacramento
“I purchased and have used for quite a few years your “Litigation by the Numbers” manual (my bible for civil litigation). I can honestly tell you that when it comes to finding out information or looking for a “how to,” I refer to this manual as my quick and easy reference guide and have always located the information I need in record time. It answers many of the questions presented to me by my attorneys and others in my office as well, answers that you cannot easily locate elsewhere. BRAVO to its brilliant author!!”
Terri Shaw, Westminster
“Julie Goren’s book “Litigation by the Numbers” is an excellent reference manual which covers the filing of a complaint thru the resolution of a case. Information is presented in a logical and concise manner. Her explanations of “what, how, and why” will answer any question you may have regarding each phase of a case. I keep my copy of this manual handy and always refer to it. This is an invaluable reference for any litigation secretary or paralegal.”
Estelle Pete, Orange County
“It should be a part of every California litigation secretary’s professional reference material. It has proven to be an invaluable tool, and is the first book I turn to when I have a question regarding filing procedures.”
Nancy Commerdinger, Irvine
“It’s an excellent resource. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to make sure their court filings and service of process assignments are done right the first time.”

“It’s a great resource so it’s no surprise to me that LBTN is the ‘go-to’ text for [the Orange County Association of Legal Administrator’s annual civil litigation seminar]!”
Mark Schwartz, One Legal, LLC
“I have never seen a more comprehensive, step-by-step manual on California procedure. It contains a wealth of useful, up to date information, and I recommend it to my clients.”
Jeff Karotkin, One Legal, LLC
“I recommend Litigation By The Numbers to Davidson clients and candidates all the time, particularly to candidates who have been out of the market for a while and need a refresher on current California procedure. It’s a very easy, step-by-step book of why, when, and how to prepare, file and serve legal documents.”
Diana Baker, (formerly) Director of Training & Business Development, Davidson Staffing
“Your book is a great resource for . . . a new attorney that wants to make sure that his or her work is filed properly and is tired of asking for help, the sole practitioner that does a lot of his or her own work and the seasoned litigator that does not want to solely rely on support staff to make sure that all deadlines are met.”
Lynn A. Shinmoto, Attorney, Los Angeles
“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
I have been a customer of Litigation by the Numbers for several years. I use it 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 Calendar Departments. I pay for my own set so it can go with me anywhere.
