Updated for the sixth edition, the NH Bar Associationís Traps for the Unwary includes tips and advice on everything from attachments, auto accident coverage, and ethical questions, to social host liability, wills, taxes, and much more.

The 80-page book was updated this year by members of the NHBA New Lawyers Committee.
