The next best thing to having a lawyer in the family.

Can you win monetary damages for bad sex? Can you get fired for being too fat? Can you sign your mother-in-law into a nursing home against her will?

For anyone who’s ever had a legal question that seemed too odd or embarrassing to seek counsel, So Sue Me, Jackass! is a surprising and entertaining collection of factual and funny Q&As that combines engaging wit and sensible legal advice. Attorney Amy Epstein Feldman and her sister, humor writer Robin Epstein address a wide range of legal issues encountered in daily life, including jobs, relationships, home, family, pets (yes, pets), privacy, and death—and they relate outrageous anecdotes of laugh-out­loud legal fiascos. So Sue Me, Jackass! may not keep you out of litigation—but it will keep you in stitches.
