Mary Ann Hall, Esq. of Hall & Means, LLC has graciously accepted our invitation to be our speaker this month and she will be speaking about successful utilization of discovery and third-party experts, in family law cases, when you find yourself in scenarios where the actual hard facts of a case take of the drivers’ seat in arriving to a successful outcome to your case versus relying merely on the written law.

This is a 1 hour CLE Credit. Please check out the links to our website to learn more about this luncheon and our speaker.
