I’m a defense attorney and I’ve realized the importance of technology but he blew me away with how much more advanced he is but an equally important issue is insurance companies don’t pay defense counsel to become this well equipped we’re plainly outgunned

This is the best program I listened to. As a seasoned practitioner who reads the NY Law Journal daily, much of the information in CLE classes is not particularly helpful. But the information on current technology, and how to use it in personal injury, is not something that is readily available.
