Mr. Abbott has had a vibrant career and considers a highlight to be when he was nationally recognized as an expert in creating direct marketing advertising and, consequently, became the attorney for many of the top mail-order experts and firms throughout the country. He has written books on the subject including, but not limited to, “How to Do Your Own Legal Work,” “How to Win in Small Claims Court,” and “The Millionaire Mindset.” He attributes his success to hard work and a strong desire to achieve success for his clients.
