Author Testimonials

Being an author for Practical Guidance has been an incredible experience. I was able to pick my topics, obtain fabulous support from the LexisNexis team and network with other experts in my field. I am so thankful for this incredible opportunity.
Julie Capell
Partner, Davis Wright Tremaine LLP
Working with LexisNexis on my Practical Guidance video was great. Throughout the preparation, recording, and editing process, the LexisNexis team worked to made the process easy and comfortable for me. They provided all the support I needed--all I had to do was read my lines and share my insights! I am very pleased with the published video and would gladly do another one.
Rick Antonoff
Partner, Blank Rome LLP
Working with the LexisNexis Practical Guidance team was easy as they were very supportive. I especially liked how quickly they offered feedback and worked with me step-by-step to get my article finished and published. I would happily work with them again!
