The Family Section will kick off the year on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 5:30 p.m. in the CLE Classroom of the Bar Building with a program on Valuing Professional Practices, presented by Eric Rollinger, Esquire, of Stein Sperling. The program will focus on the special considerations in valuing professional practices, such as Law Offices and Doctor’s Offices, that don’t always apply to other businesses, including the computation of Personal Goodwill. Plan to attend this helpful and informative program!
Don’t forget to sign up to attend our first CLE of the year, on Wednesday, October 29, 2014, from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. in the CLE classroom, entitled: Evidence and trial practice for the family law practitioner, presented by speakers from the bench and bar. This seminar will review the proper methods of introducing evidence relevant to a family law case. Focus will be on methods and objections to authenticating evidence, including lay testimony, expert testimony, expert reports, social media, and prior statements of children. This practical seminar will also review effective cross examination techniques and arguments before the court. Tips on presenting your case and “views from the bench” will be provided along with helpful written material.
And as we gear up for another great year, please also SAVE THE DATE for the following social events.
