My publisher just sent me 20 “advance” copies of my book, “Stephens Squibs”.
While the book is about divorce law (i.e. boring), it does include many of my inspirational essays.
I also included the “Advice for Over Achievers” article which so many of you contributed to. So if you are in the article, you are in this book! 🙂
I figured I might have a chance to raise a few dollars for the foundation by offering to send you a copy (signed if you want) if you make a donation of at least $50 in honor of “Stephens’ Squibs” (so it shows up in the Deltasig) between the dates of December 13, 2016 through January 15, 2017 (or while supplies last).
Make the donation directly to the Leadership Foundation so you get the tax deduction. Forward me the email you receive. I will pay the postage AND give you one of my advance copies.
Let me know if you want it autographed / personalized.
Note: There is a big typo in the book that is being corrected for final release, It’s kind of funny because that makes these extra collectible!

2017 Squib Book
Once a year I collect 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 Forword, any money raised off of this project (through purchase of physical book or e-book) will be donated to 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.

“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
Excellent resource for the non-attorney litigation support specialist. A quick reference for financial, accountants, CPAs and mental health professionals that assist divorce attorneys with litigation and settlement services. Highly recommended. -FLDivorcePlanner
