    It might seem counterintuitive, but often attorneys who work in the field of medical malpractice and personal injury fail to understand the degree to which their clients have suffered. This CLE course, presented by attorney and forensic expert Mark Silver, will offer useful and humanistic tools to better understand what clients have suffered so that they can better and more holistically advocate for them.

    The course will explain these new tools and how to use them to more comprehensively evaluate client loss and ensure they are compensated accordingly.
