    Excellent. While I groaned at Browning's 4:20 joke, be assured I will use it myself … with no attribution.

    Thoroughly enjoyed all of the topics presented,but especially the family & immigration law one since I have zero exposure to that practice area. All of the presenters were engaging and their senses of humor were most appreciated.

    Very well presented and infomative.
