Dothan Alabama Personal Injury and Accident Lawyers to Conduct Continuing Legal Education Seminar for Local Attorneys

May 18, 2012 by

The Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm and the Law Firm of Prince, Glover & Hayes along with Troy University Dothan are proud to present a six hour continuing legal education seminar for Alabama general practice attorneys on Friday July 13, 2012, at Troy University Dothan entitled David vs. Goliath: How to Survive and Defeat the Giant.  The seminar will focus on personal injury and accident cases and specifically the way to survive and defeat the giant insurance companies and big powerful corporations in injury and accident cases.

The attendees will learn about Goliath and the danger he poses to the community, as well as the dirty tactics and tricks he employs to deny injury and accident victims justice.

The attendees will learn that victory and survival is obtained through early and thorough trial preparation in each and every case in an effort to prove and demonstrate liability, injuries, and damages, overcome defenses, and add value to the case to maximize recovery. This puts the personal injury and accident lawyer law firm in the best position to prove and demonstrate that full compensation in the case serves to protect the public by sending a message that people and businesses that violate rules and expose the public to unnecessary danger will be required to pay in full measure.

The seminar will be in the Sonny Hall and will be free of charge to the first sixty Alabama general practice attorneys that register and breakfast, lunch and refreshments will be provided. There will also be a number of vendors in attendance. To register call: 334-983-0005.

Matt Glover will describe from experience Goliath and his armor, weapons, army and resources and the danger he poses to the community, as well as the dirty tactics and tricks he employs. He will show you from personal experience how big powerful corporations like insurance companies will take every step they can get away with to minimize the payout on their claims and in some cases, doing everything to avoid paying all together. This can deny justice to the community and your clients.

10:00 am - 10:45 am - David by Aaron Gartlan personal injury and accident lawyer Aaron Gartlan of the Hogg & Gartlan Law Firm in Dothan, Alabama. Aaron Gartlan will teach you that with five smooth stones, a sling and invisible armor, you can face and proclaim victory over Goliath, which serves to protect the community and your clients that suffer accidents and injuries. Victory and survival is obtained through early and thorough trial preparation in each and every case in an effort to prove and demonstrate liability, injuries, and damages, overcome defenses, and add value to the case to maximize recovery. Sometimes retaining the services of the right medical, psychological, legal, financial, engineering, accident reconstruction, investigative, and other experts can help this mission. This puts the personal injury and accident lawyer law firm in the best position to prove and demonstrate that full compensation in the case serves to protect the public by sending a message that people and businesses that violate rules and expose the public to unnecessary danger will be required to pay in full measure.
