Breakout Sessions


The presentation is based upon several high-profile cases I have tried and clients whom I have represented. I will describe how to take action from the first day of an accident to properly present the client to the public.  This will reduce negative public opinion and publicity to not only benefit the litigation but the client’s reputation.
