April 2014 Luncheon

Thursday, April 24: Monthly Luncheon, 12:15-1:30pm at the CBA

Topic: Expert Witness Testimony - Preparing and Strategic Planning for Trial

Expert witness testimony can make or break a case. Whether you are preparing for your first trial or you are a seasoned litigator, preparing a persuasive expert witness is an important advantage at trial.

Expert witness Sandra Metzler (SEA, Ltd.) and local attorneys Jami Oliver (Oliver Law Office) and Kelly Grigsby (Williams, Moliterno & Scully Co., LPA) will discuss how to prepare an expert and how to strategize and analyze your case to most effectively present your expert's testimony. CLE credit available. Please RSVP to Rachel Sabo, rachel@thefriedmannfirm.com, 937-834-0069.

At the April luncheon, in our continued support of the YWCA Family Center, WLFC will be accepting donations of diapers (size 4, 5, and 6), pull-ups, and baby wipes to be delivered to the resident families.
