When I offered to send a signed squib book in exchange for a $50 donation directly to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention or The Leadership Foundation of Delta Sigma Pi I did not anticipate we would raise $950 in 48 hours.
You are all way to generous! Holy Cow and thank you for your support!
So…. to keep this momentum going, we have 2 pre-sale options.
A) I have ordered 15 more “advance copies” to keep the magic going.
There are 3 ways to partake in this offer:
- Donate $50 directly to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in memory of Erik Cahill between today and January 31, 2016. You benefit from the tax deduction. I will pay for the shipping. Send me the receipt and let me know where to ship it to.
- Donate $50 directly to the Leadership Foundation of Delta Sigma Pi, designating it to the “Eddie Stephens South Florida Educational Fund”. You benefit from the tax deduction. I will pay for the shipping. Send me the receipt and let me know where to ship it to.
- Pay pal me $50. I will donate 100% of that amount equally to each charity. I will pay for the shipping. Paypal me as a friend to reduce fee, then send me an email and let me know where to ship it to.
Under this scenario, I am paying for the book and shipping and I will send it to you. Expected arrival will by January 3, 2017. If you make donation directly, you benefit from tax deduction. If you send me money I benefit from tax deduction.
B) Preorder the book directly from the Publisher for $28 (30% off). For each book bought, only $15 will be donated to charity. Book is shipped directly from Publisher so no autograph. Book is officially published January 15, 2017. If you preorder you might even get it before that date.
C) Or you can wait until it hits major book retailers, pay $38 for the book and $9 will be donated to charity.
D) Get the KINDLE version for $9.99. $3.50 for every purchase gets donated to charity. The rest goes to Amazon!
As you may know, every year I publish all of my “squibs” (brief case law summaries focusing on Florida family law) and make the material available in a book format.
I am honored and proud to present the 2017 Edition of Stephens’ Squibs Florida Family Case Law Updates. Something that started as a personal learning tool unexpectedly morphed into a respected and requested resource by colleagues which is why I always offer the material for free on this website.
For reasons stated in this year’s Foreword, any money raised off of this project (through purchase of physical book or e-book) will be equally divided between the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and Leadership Foundation of Delta Sigma Pi.
In addition to squibbing, 2016 was an extremely prolific year in writing for me and I had included some of my favorite published essays.
Many thanks to Rev. Shannon Marie L. Berry, M.Div for writing this year’s foreword.
Let me remind you that all of the information contained in the book can be found on this website for free. Some people prefer the book AND you get a chance support a great cause!
Thanks for your support and Happy New Year!
“Eddie’s squibs are a great resource, and every marital and family lawyer in Florida should keep a copy front and center on her desk.” –Laura Davis Smith, Esquire Chairwoman, Family Law Section of the Florida Bar
“I remember receiving Stephens’ Squibs over 10 years ago. Now, it is most definitely not the small firecracker it once was.… Simply the best …I refer to it all the time.” –Robert M.W. Shalhoub, Esquire
“Eddie Stephens’ Squibs are a quick, easy to read summary of appellate case law that family law practitioners should be sure to include in their resource tool kit. It is a major “go to” resource that I rely upon when I am looking to check on the latest developments in the law and to point me in the direction of the appropriate full appellate opinions.” –Honorable Diane M. Kirigin, General Magistrate, 15th Judicial Circuit
“Eddie’s book – and all his squibs – are amazing – as an appellate attorney I always have to remind myself to keep the case to its holding and Eddie always keeps me “honest” – and his case summaries bring to mind my favorite Albert Einstein quote: “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.” That was one smart dude and so is Eddie – buy his book – I know I will (again)!” –Allison Perry, Esquire
Eddie Stephens provides an invaluable resource for those wanting to keep abreast of the ever-evolving area of Florida Family Law. As both a lawyer and academic, I also highly recommend this book to professors teaching Family Law in Florida. The textbooks can give the basics, but since family law is a creature of state law, giving students a real glimpse (not to mention a good preparation for the bar) into how our ever-changing statutes are being interpreted, is a gift. -K Grossman
Mr. Stephens provides a brilliant conglomeration of case law updates, interviews with judges and personal advice in Stephens Squibs. The case law review helps the attorney that practices in other areas to understand more easily the law surrounding family issues in Florida. For most attorneys, no matter their practice area, family comes up at some point in the representation and it is nice to have a guide that is so easily accessible to reference just so that we, as attorneys in other fields, can quickly answer some questions and have the knowledge to refer in other areas. -Dena Sisk Foman
Note: This is the 2nd of 3 emails about the printed Stephens’ Squibs books. Last year I received an email from a subscriber telling me he would unsubscribe if he got another email about the book. So he was booted from the tribe.
Keep in mind i have NEVER made a dime off of my squibbing. I do use this as an opportunity to raise money for good causes. If you do not want these emails, the “unsubscribe” button is at the bottom of this email. If you do not like my occasional do-gooder email, it’s best we part ways now. Please don’t send me any email complaining. Just unsubscribe. Thanks! 🙂
