    I really like the way the book is layed out. I can flip through it and find the particular area I am interested in at the time or use the contents page. I also like the sample chart of accounts and items included with the book. It has been and will continue to be of great value to me.

    This book is incredible! Worth every penny! If you are setting up Quickbooks for a law firm, this book is a must-have. As a new user of Quickbooks while setting up a new law firm, I was overwhelmed. I knew the setup of information was critical in order to get the information I would need later. If this book is read before setup, and then used as step-by-step instruction manual during setup, you cannot go wrong. It covers everything from setup to reporting. And the best part is that Lynette is a simple phone call away with answers or clarifications for any questions you may have. Thank you, Lynette!

    I am delighted with the book. I had purchased QuickBooks® about a year ago. I then figured that I needed help using it and so I paid a near-by accounting firm $485.00 for help. About two weeks later, I gave it up completely, it was costing a fortune in additional telephone calls and it was taking forever to do the simplest things. With your book, I was using it effectively with in about six hours; my trusts were set up and I was doing business out of QuickBooks®. If you had any idea how much time that you have saved; if you had any idea how much sanity that I have remaining at the end of the day with your help then you would come to Kentucky and demand an additional payment.

    This book is a must for any small firm or solo practitioner! I cannot imagine trying to manage my law firm finances and trust accounting without it. It is a must read for anyone wanting to streamline and simply their law office accounting procedures. This book has saved me so much time that it has paid for itself many times over. I use it weekly as a reference guide, and have recommended it to many of my colleagues.
