I have been proud and honored to speak at two distinguished events recently:
On May 2nd, I spoke to the American Association of Justice (AAJ) in New Orleans, regarding the ongoing NFL Concussion Litigation. This was timely for the members as the topic of the seminar was “Litigating Traumatic Brain Injury Cases.”
I also spoke to the Ga. Trial Lawyers Association (GTLA) at its 2013 Annual Convention on May 16th. “Connective Tissue Motor Vehicle Injury Trials” was the topic of the presentation.
