About the Seminar
Developing a successful personal injury practice is both rewarding and very hard work - and there are no short cuts. You have to learn how to reach a target audience with your message, then carefully evaluate the clients and cases that come in your door. You have to become both a subject matter authority and understand the theoretical and practical nuances of procedure, evidence, negotiation strategy and motion and trial practice. You have to learn the hard lessons of practicing law and also running a small business - all within the exacting ethical standards of the Rules of Professional Conduct and in competition with hundreds of your colleagues, many of whom have vastly more experience than you.

A daunting task? Certainly. Impossible? Not at all.

This powerful and innovative seminar is designed and taught by lawyers who have already done what you want to do - and they want to pass their knowledge and experience on. The goal of “Secrets to a Successful Plaintiffs Personal Injury Practice” is to provide insights and instruction on the basics of evaluating cases and maximizing results. If you are considering or beginning to build a personal injury practice, this seminar is for you. Attending this program may be the most important single day of your law career.
