Hear from Past Attendees:

This was an excellent seminar. The experience was fun and entertaining, and well worth the cost. Everyone needs to incorporate what we learned here into their trial practice.
- Raymond Mullman, Spartanburg, SC

Every lawyer who handles these cases should attend an AAJ Nursing Home Litigation Seminar. The speakers are always among the most preeminent practitioners in the field.
- Sean P. McDonough, Moosic, PA

What I learned is that I have not spent enough time seeing, hearing, and feeling the humanity in each of my cases. This program alerted me to why depicting that humanity is the real key to showing the jury how to do justice for our clients.
- Jim Coogan, Chicago, IL
