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.
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.

Trial Guides believes these case values do not reflect a true state of the severity of crash injuries, but instead a failure by attorneys to fully understand the claim process and the injuries involved in these collisions. We believe it's time to face claim underpayments head on. So, as the nation's leading publishing company for plaintiff's lawyers, we asked ourselves this question. How can we radically change the way personal injury lawyers handle motor vehicle cases with one CLE?
The largest legal settlement in American history resulted in an estimated $300 billion payout from tobacco companies to state governments, including an additional $50 billion in punitive damages. The lead trial attorney from Washington state was Inner Circle Member Paul Luvera. He was chosen to represent the State of Washington due to a career of multi-million dollar verdicts in several states including a $44 million verdict in Washington, a $29 million verdict in Oregon, and a $20 million verdict in Idaho.
Learn from Luvera's unique wisdom with Trial Guides' Paul Luvera on Trial Strategy. This four-DVD set covers techniques on discovery and trial preparation, jury selection, opening statements, capturing jury interest in direct examination, cross-examination, and closing statements.
We are pleased to present an intensive two-day seminar on handling motor vehicle cases with Dr. Aaron DeShaw, Esq. DeShaw is the author of the authoritative text on Colossus, the computer program used by most auto insurance companies to evaluate bodily injury claims. He has individually, and in cooperation with other law firms, obtained settlements and verdicts for clients of over $400 million. DeShaw rarely lectures, and this intensive seminar is his first in four years.
