Attorney ResourcesHelping You Help Others
Welcome to Vaage Law’s Attorney Resources section. While we as attorneys act as resources for our clients, attorneys also need their own resources to constantly better themselves and augment their practice.
In his more than 35 years of practicing law, attorney Bob Vaage has drawn inspiration from a wide, eclectic range of sources to improve his courtroom presentations.
The following are selections that can help you sharpen your skills as a lawyer. We will continue adding to this list as we compile more resources for attorneys.
