Book Reviews

What our clients have said about our books and our services

Confidence and a path forward

The knowledge that there is a path forward gave me the confidence to go there more calm. $400/hr attorney beat by a pro per . . . . Sherry and Ron’s material helps you shift to a more favorable arena. It has shifted my entire outlook and perspective. I now walk into court more calm and confident. I think that new attitude is helping turn the tide.

Review by Dad in California
I'm Grateful

I’m grateful for the guidance of Ron and Sherry Palmer for giving me the push. Many of us would not be where we are if it were not for them.

Review by Mother in Connecticut.
I will forever be grateful

Your help in court gained me the right to see all of my children and, while it is far from perfect, you gave me the strength and knowledge to at least fight for our rights. For that, I will forever be grateful.

Review by Mario
A must read.

And I bought the motions package. I “won” a two-day hearing as a pro-se.

Review by Father in California
Fired my attorney and won my custody case

I read your book, fired my attorney and won my custody case against a corrupt judicial district, lawless county sheriff’s department and a group of crooked lawyers. Nobody believed in me except me. Your book is worth hundreds of dollars!

Review by Mother in Kansas
A new voice and a strategy

I felt like I had a voice and I could choose to say no if needed. . . . now I feel like we have a much better position to work on our new strategy. My son’s dad even let him call me later that day for the first time in years.
