One of the better CLE's I have heard. Mr. Alimonti is an accomplished attorney and conveyed his considerable knowledge in an effective way. I appreciated how he involved the audience, which was clearly engaged in the topic.

Brian

As someone who has worked in aviation manufacturing and maintenance for 30+ yrs it was informative to see how litigators look at the industry.

Jennifer

Such an interesting lecture.

Mark
Forest Hills, NY

Issues involving forum shopping and ethics were interesting

Suzanne
Stockton, CA

The ethics and professional duty sections, are wopven throughout the entire seminar, which I applaude because in litigation and ethis, you don't want to sit and hear the RPR and the FRP, or various statutes with no refernce to a real situation and many other different types of ethical dilemmas. Alimonti A- OK!

Michael
San Francisco, CA

Fred Alimonti is a consistently excellent speaker. I have seen him before in person and he is always informative, interesting and engaging. Highest praise.

Fun Class!

CARMEN
Newark, NJ

I enjoyed that the speaker was open to questions. It made the presentation more interesting and cut the monotony of just having one person speak on a subject.

Doris
Scarsdale, NY

Speaker was excellent! The nuns of St. Mel's would be proud!

Theodore
Waterbury, VT

Some of the most helpful ethics work I can recall - concrete, practical but in no way cynical. Audience worthy of Socrates, Prof that rare useful Socratic who engages, listens and uses dialog to teach. The projection behind the speaker did not match nonlinear slides but was largely unreadable.

Really good: A nice way to put ethics CLE into a specialized context, especially for those of us who have aviation cases, but even for those who do not but want to take their medicine in a less painful way. Alimonti was very effective in laying it out and keeping it interesting.

Donald
Lake Forest Park, WA

The VERY best ethics class I have taken. Tell him so. I wish there were more instructors who took the time to parse out the issues to get nuances like he did by changing the fact scenarios to make the audience think. Kudos to the audience interaction as well. FUN class
