The Retainer Agreement is one of the most important contracts that you'll ever draft or sign as an attorney. Not only do Retainer Agreements protect clients from overreaching by unscrupulous... More > lawyers, but they can immunize lawyers against malpractice claims and non-payment by clients. Moreover, from the terms of the Retainer Agreement to its design, a Retainer Agreement is a reflection of your practice and the way you do business - making it a potential selling tool for your firm. Most of the retainer agreements for free online or even those drafted by various Bar Associations can provide a good starting point, but many do not address the multiple issues that lawyers must consider when dealing with 21st century problems and do not generally reflect 21st century form or style.

The word “anarchy” evokes images of dangerous mobs, spiky-haired youths hurling garbage cans through Starbucks windows, and the chaos of the war of all against all. However, the word... More > “anarchy” simply means “without rulers” - and this state of affairs is something we desperately desire and defend in so many areas of our own lives.

Is being “without rulers” good, or bad? How can we fear something so terribly, while at the same time treasuring it so mightily? “Everyday Anarchy” addresses this challenge head-on, arguing that being free of rulers is not something to fear - personally or politically - but rather a goal that we must constantly strive towards.< Less

Practical Anarchy makes strong case for the private – that is to say voluntary – provision for public services. It reveals the idea of government as a dangerous and unnecessary anachronism, and points the way towards a peaceful and voluntary future for mankind.< Less
