1h 1m

Created on June 24, 2021





This fun interactive course will go through what questions to ask, what answers to give and how to issue spot and strategize with a prospective client through a mock client consultation. A client consultation is an attorney's chance to set themselves apart from other attorneys to not only win the client but also gather the information an attorney needs to strategize and effectively represent the individual. Family Law issues are often emotionally charged and this course will address issues related to divorce, custody, child support, spousal support, equitable distribution, as well as the practical advice and candor required when representing parties in these sensitive areas.  

This program, presented by family law practitioners Alissa Van Horn and Meredith Friedman, is designed to provide you with essential skills to land the client, spot the issues, formulate a strategy with the client and allay many of the client's fears and concerns from an emotional and practical standpoint by providing you with a front-row seat in client consultation.
