Cari Rincker and Pat Dillon teamed up to co-author the “Field Manual: Legal Guide for New York Farmers and Food Entrepreneurs” to serve as a practical guide for different segments of the agriculture industry. It gives a general overview of a myriad of food and agriculture law issues including business formation, contract law, confidentiality, farm leases, environmental regulation, animal law, land use and zoning, right-to-farm law, intellectual property, farm transportation, employment and labor law, property law, wind energy leases, direct farm marketing, cottage food operations, food labeling, and on-farm poultry slaughter. It’s a “must read” for New York farms, agri-business owners, and food entrepreneurs to help them understand the breadth of laws that affect their business.

This comprehensive divorce and family law book is truly one-of-a-kind. It offers the perspectives of attorneys and professionals on a myriad of family and matrimonial law topics, including issues regarding:

    (e.g., custody, visitation, support, paternity, child protective proceedings, adoptions, kidnapping);


    (e.g., grounds for a divorce/annulment, spousal maintenance, equitable distribution, religious issues);


    (e.g., family offense proceedings, conciliation proceedings, Persons In Need of Supervision);


    (e.g., prenuptial/postnuptial agreements, cohabitation agreements, pet agreements, surrogacy agreements);


    (e.g., litigation, mediation, collaborative law, neutral evaluation).

What makes this book especially unique are the diverse viewpoints from non-lawyer professionals who aid people through these various life changes. To illustrate, the book’s authors include a parent coordinator, parenting coach, nutritionist, image consultant, mindfulness and lifestyle coach, personal trainer, credit repair professional, professional organizer, insurance professional, private investigator and real estate professional. This diverse approach adds invaluable depth and perspective to the reader. This book also offers information on social media, courtroom decorum, keeping legal fees down, choosing a qualified attorney, and community resources. There is truly something for everyone who is going through a family law dispute or transition.
