A client involved in tort or civil litigation has many concerns and will rely on their counsel for both advocacy and advice.  This course will review how you can help them to achieve their goals and manage their concerns. Simple but effective tips will be offered to counsel for both plaintiffs and  defendants to either maximize or minimize recovery, investigate insurance coverage and important areas of discovery. The program will also include questions that must be asked at depositions and the growing use of ADR to resolve these disputes.

Attorney Kenneth J. Landau of the tort and insurance coverage firm of Shayne, Dachs, Sauer, & Dachs will offer these tips to maximize the satisfaction of your clients and to help you avoid grievance or malpractice claims.  This program will be of interest and importance to attorneys in many other areas of practice as well.

  1. Gain a general overview of best practices for attorneys representing both plaintiffs and defendants in handling a tort or civil case
  2. Identify the initial considerations in evaluating the case and preserving evidence
