Melanie Russell has wanted to write a memoir about her first days as a solicitor in private practice on her own account for many, many years. Several attempts ended up in the waste paper basket, others were kept for inspiration. Nearly forty years later when the practice of law has changed vastly, Melanie is delighted that she has finally managed to achieve this small goal. There are many more stories to tell if this small volume proves popular!
