From the Publisher:

You're familiar with the look of abject frustration which often paints the faces of litigants. You're also familiar with the clenched teeth, the nervous ramblings, and the occasional blasts of profanity. Thanks to Ms. Huffer, we now have a clinical name for these behaviors. They're symptoms of a larger psychological disorder she has named Legal Abuse Syndrome. If Huffer's research is accurate, citizens who have prolonged and unsuccessful experiences with the courts run the risk of developing a post traumatic stress disorder similar to combat fatigue. To put it bluntly, having to do "battle" with a system whose basic operating procedures are cloaked in arcane language and guarded by the spectre of the Unauthorized Practice of Law can be damaging to your psyche! Her book, Overcoming the Devastation of Legal Abuse Syndrome is a detailed examination of this syndrome and its impact on citizen litigants. It should be in the hands of every therapist, social worker, attorney, judge, and politician in the nation. It mostly belongs in the hands of those who are hurting as a result of a judicial system that does not serve the taxpayer.

From the Author:

This may not come as much of a surprise, but going to court can make you sick. The disorder that I witnessed in my private practice for 15 years caused me to research and to coin the term legal abuse syndrome. It can strike crime victims, witnesses, litigants, attorneys-anyone who has dealt with the American system of laws and courts. Legal abuse syndrome is a variant of pottraumatic stress disorder, a psychologically damaging condition that can afflict people who suffer a horrific experience. A legal battle can drag on for years seriously affecting the health and coping ability of the individual while court personnel are unaware and seem often unconcerned. I developed an answer and a solution for litigants, families, attorneys and helpers.
