23 About the Author
This book is better than having a lawyer in the family. Know Your Rights! is more than just "A little bit of knowledge" and not nearly as dangerous. READ IT. That's an order!
— "Judge" Larry Joe Doherty, star of TV's Texas Justice, star of TV's Texas Justice
The best book in Texas for straightforward answers to legal questions that complicate our lives.
— Lynne Liberato, past president, State Bar of Texas
This book keeps you well informed about your legal rights. This is good and bad for Judges. The litigants are better prepared and so dockets run smoothly... but .... we now have to be even better at what we do. When litigants come in quoting Richard Alderman, I know, I better really be on my toes.
— Molly Maness-Barnes, Texas Small Claims Court Judge
