    Ann M. Israel is among the most highly respected and sought after legal search professionals in the largest and most competitive legal market in the United States—the New York City metropolitan area. She enjoys long-standing relationships among top-tier and mid-tier law firms in Manhattan, Long Island, Connecticut, and New Jersey.

    For more than twenty years Ann has received questions and she continues to provide answers. Advice for the Lawlorn is Ann’s compilation of some of the compelling highlights and lowlights that she wrote which appeared in American Lawyer Media (ALM) publications over the column's 20+ year history, and within her 35 years as a legal search professional. These questions, concerns and issues are candid in the extreme because of the anonymity of her readers’ letters, and no issue is left unanswered or unaddressed.

    Each chapter comprises a series of questions that have been posed to the author in a “Dear Abby” kind of format and she responds in kind, covering a range of topics from how to write a resume that will be of interest to the hiring manager at a law firm to changing firms/jobs mid-career to office etiquette to becoming a partner and beyond.

    Some of these letters will make you laugh and some will make you cry. And Ann’s replies reveal an iron fist of knowledge inside a velvet glove of understanding. Ann condenses the wealth of experiences relayed by 20+ years of these letter writers to her column and the treasure trove of advice she’s provided in that same time into this single handbook for lawyers. She supplements her greatest hits from her column with contemporary reflections that when you read them will make you ponder at her introspection.

    Her advice ranges from the tactical to the practical and covers the entirety of a lawyer’s career—from law school through partnership and even to the winding down of a legal career. Much of her advice is timeless, but some of it is specifically useful for today’s legal field.
