One of our own, Brenda S. Fulmer has contributed a substantial chapter titled “Mass Torts: The Bird’s-Eye View” to the recently released book “Anatomy of a Personal Injury Lawsuit, 4th Edition” which is a comprehensive and up-to-date resource for practicing plaintiffs’ attorneys and their staffs. The book is full of detailed advice, practice tips, arguments, charts, illustrations, and example that you’d be hard-pressed to find anywhere else. Brenda Fulmer’s own chapter elaborates on the inner workings of a mass torts case and how attorneys can run successful mass torts practices. The editor of the book chose several other lawyers recognized as experts in their field to present on various aspects of personal injury litigation.
According to Howard Nations, a Trial Lawyer Hall of Fame Inductee, AAJ Lifetime Achievement Award Recipient, and a Co-Founder of the National College of Advocacy, “The thirty-seven chapters, written by trial lawyers for trial lawyers, update the panoply of information, techniques and strategy required to successfully prosecute a case from intake through investigation, evaluation, preparation, trial or settlement. The expertise of the writers is exceeded only by the value of their advice. These two volumes contain a wealth of timely knowledge that is invaluable to every trial lawyer, regardless of their level of experience, and make an essential desktop companion.” The book is looked upon highly in the field of personal injury law.
