on point and delivered effectively

The supporting materials for "too many entities" was lacking. The real estate fixes was an excellent program. Disaster Planning was a bit more general, but having rebuilt my practice after Harvey in Rockport, my knowledge is a bit more in depth in some areas. I also was on the State Bar FEMA committee back when we had one in the mid 1990s. Learned a lot from the tornado in Fort Worth and the Houston floods.

Session 4: Analyzing Your Contract Through the Eyes of a Litigator and Jury - Examine the common causes of action coming out of a breach of contract, review the state statutory and case law regarding common contract provisions, and understand different perspectives of the transactional attorney and the litigator on the same agreement so that you can ask and answer important questions that may change the drafting of the agreement in the first place.
