About the Seminar
This program qualifies for 1.67 MCLE credit hours.
Too much is at stake to not consider structuring settlements for your clients: Such as their future and your future. Have you considered their medical needs, income stream, education, and a multitude of very specific needs, all protected and tax-free? Have you considered your future licensure and liability issues for not properly advising your clients’? Often times it is what you don’t know that gets you in trouble when resolving your clients’ cases. Attending this seminar will not only be an entertaining experience, but one that will help you answer the questions about when and why to structure settlements.
