This was second course I watched given by Mr. Schwartz. He is very effective and I could see where a jury, especially in NY, would relate to him. His young colleagues are very fortunate to be working under his tutelage.

I've viewed my fair share of CLE courses. This course regarding employment law litigation is by far the most satisfying, informative and easy to follow CLE course I've taken.
