Trial Strategies Lecture
SOLO and Small Firms
Recently I had the honor of presenting a lecture on trial strategies to a packed room at the Missouri Bar Association’ 21st Annual Solo and Small Firm Conference held June 9-11, 2016, at Tan-Tar-A Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri.
One of the key topics in my lecture related to the use of new and cutting edge concepts and strategies I use in cases that go to trial in order to obtain the best result possible for my clients.
More than 100 attorneys from all over the state filled the room to capacity and more chairs were needed.
Helping The Elderly or Disabled
Afterwards, myself and my good friend Christine Alsop, a St. Louis attorney who’s practice specializes in helping elderly or disabled people with their legal problems, jointly presented another continuing legal education lecture. We focused on details and strategies of complying with state and federal law requiring an injured person to repay the government out of their settlement for the medical bills paid by Medicaid or Medicare.
This is a complicated and confusing area of the law that many practitioners lack knowledge or skill, and thus fail to maximize the client’s result, or fail to comply fully with the reimbursement requirements. Christine and I have teamed up on similar presentations for a number of years in various cities across the state, keeping our colleagues up to date so that their clients will be fully protected.
Supporting A Great Association
A decade ago, I served as the Chair of the Solo and Small Firm for 2 years, leading the conference to larger attendance and improved programs, for which I was recognized with a Distinguished Service Award.
I have attended the conference regularly since its beginning, helping new attorneys, sharing his ideas and skills, and building his network of colleagues across the state which helps me with referrals of clients to and from other attorneys to help their clients.
