Session 12: Dealing with Combative and Unscrupulous Lawyers - How to avoid intimidation and manage the disruptive, disreputable, and overly zealous lawyer in an ethical, civil, and professional manner.

Session 13: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly in Car Crash Cases Two trial judges with a combined 25 years of judicial experience discuss what they’ve seen that works and doesn’t work in car crash cases.
