Practical and helpful advice
Excellent Course! The speaker imparted invaluable knowledge and tips from his years of experience. Whether you plan to go solo or not, every lawyer should know these things and adopt as many of them as possible into his or her practice These courses that, not only give facts, but incorporate experience are best courses by far. I highly recommend.
