Resolving ERISA Liens Continuing Legal Education Webinar
Since the Supreme Court’s 2006 decision in Sereboff, claims made by ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) qualified plans against third party recoveries has been a growing area of attention for trial attorneys and their clients. While these plans can create strong rights of reimbursement, it is essential to understand how and when these rights are created. Furthermore, in the wake of the Sixth Circuit’s 2009 opinion in Longaberger v. Kolt, the obligation of an attorney to an ERISA plan has been a hotly contested area. Get the latest decisions on this and other important areas of ERISA.
Auto cases the insurers designate as "Minor impact" due to minimal visible vehicle damage are amongst the most difficult plaintiff cases to win, despite there being no correlation between vehicle damage and occupant injury.
Join trial consultant David Ball and veteran trial lawyer Gary Johnson for a webinar called "Reptile in MIST Cases." This webinar will discuss the use of the Reptile method to win "Minor Impact Soft Tissue" cases.
The Ethics of Confidentiality Agreements
Secrecy agreements at the end of a civil lawsuit are commonplace. But as leading attorney Patrick Malone explains, they are usually unethical, almost always bad for the plaintiff, and bad for the plaintiff attorney’s practice. The Rules of Professional Conduct give plaintiffs’ lawyers the weapons to fight back against defendants who insist on overbroad confidentiality agreements.
According to the Insurance Research Council, 32% of all people injured in a motor vehicle crash seek chiropractic care. Despite the Doctors of Chiropractic program being over 4000 hours (similar to that of a Medical Doctorate), lawyers, judges and in some cases jurors demonstrate a clear bias against chiropractic testimony.
In this webinar, lawyer Aaron DeShaw, a former Doctor of Chiropractic, shows you how to work more effectively with chiropractors.

Social media evidence is relevant to just about any type of civil and criminal case and must be routinely addressed in discovery.
Announcing a Live Medicare CLE webinar featuring Matt Garretson of the Garretson Resolution Group.
Is your firm in compliance with Medicare? The MMSEA (The Medicare, Medicaid, and SCHIP Extension Act of 2007) ensures that Medicare is the secondary payer on settlements involving Medicare eligible claimants.
Many personal injury practices center on soft tissue injuries from car accidents. For many lawyers, these are not particularly valuable cases. But what if you could find objective evidence that some of these cases are worth much more?
In this webinar, Aaron DeShaw discusses new medical imaging that can help you objectively prove serious ligament injuries in the neck that will cause permanent injuries and can only be resolved with costly fixation surgery.

Many trial attorneys are acquainted with the idea of a case theme. Certainly all trial lawyers know the critical importance of establishing and reinforcing the strongest possible theme for your case story.
Now get the background about why settlement offers are down. Why insurers spend more to defend claims than to resolve them, and drag litigation out as long as possible. It's time that every lawyer understand the "Deny-Defend-Delay" strategy being used by insurers.
