CAL-ABOTA Conference Update from Hawaii

Friday, November 8th, 2013

Mike CAL ABOTASo far it’s been a great week here at the Turtle Bay Resort on the north shore of Oahu.  I’ve enjoyed seeing some old friends and also making some new ones.  The educational seminars have been excellent.  We have enjoyed interesting and helpful presentations from:

Landon Harlan of OBU Interactive

Jane-Riley Pugh of EPS Settlements Group

Douglas Brand of Medivest

Michael T. “Mick” Callahan, President of ABOTA

The Hon. Russell Bostrom, Ret. of Judicate West

Richard Gabriel of Decision Analysis, Inc.

Mark P. Robinson, Jr., President Elect of ABOTA

I also had the pleasure of being a guest speaker, presenting a primer called “Law Firm Finance 101 – What They Don’t Teach You in Law School.”, which was a lot of fun.

Kudos to CAL-ABOTA President Steve Glickman, CAL-ABOTA Executive Director Shirley Schwartz and to Sara Mooney and the rest of the team at Carousel Travel for an excellent meeting.

There have been having some great social events too, click here to see a few photos from this week.

Tonight we’re looking forward to the Gala at which the 2013 CAL-ABOTA Trial Lawyer of the Year, Edith Matthai, will be honored.

CAL-ABOTA Annual Conference in Hawaii

CLE Presentation at the Cal-ABOTA Annual Conference in HawaiiI am pleased to be traveling to Hawaii next week to give a continuing legal education presentation at the CAL-ABOTA  Annual Conference.  The conference is from November 4th-13th at the Turtle Bay Resort on the island of Oahu.  The presentation will focus on financial and management topics for law firms.

CAL-ABOTA is the California chapter of the American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA).  ABOTA fosters improvement in the ethical and technical standards of practice in the field of advocacy to the end that individual litigants may receive more effective representation and the general public be benefited by more efficient administration of justice consistent with time-tested and traditional principles of litigation.

If you are a CAL-ABOTA member, I’d like to encourage you to consider attending the conference and I look forward to meeting you there!  Click here for more information and to register for the meeting.
