Complex family law cases generally require the use of financial experts. Sometimes the court views an expert as a "gun for hire" as opposed to a trustworthy source. When that occurs, your case is toast. This program covers 10 ways that counsel can review and guide the expert toward gaining the respect of the court and delivering testimony that is received with substantial weight.


Family Law Section Educational Co-Chairs: Elisha Jussen-Cooke, Cooperative Restraining Order Clinic; Audrey Courson, Courson Law
