Presentations

PRESENTATIONS

I bring highly engaging presentations as a professional speaker, author and practicing lawyer.  My goal is to help my colleagues avoid ethical trouble by keeping them up to date on the latest ethical news and giving practical advice on how to avoid issues.  In addition, many of my programs qualify for Continuing Legal Education credits.

Upcoming Events

My next webinar is being offered in December as a part of the 2018 Law Launcher Legal Technology Virtual Summit.  I will be speaking for one hour on the following topic:  iPhones to Cloud-Computing, Facebook to Twitter, Avoiding Ethical Pitfalls at the Intersection of Law and Technology.

I’m excited to announce that I will be returning to speak at the 2019 ABA TECHSHOW  in Chicago, IL.  The two presentations I will be giving are titled: Reputation Management in the Digital Age and Care and Feeding of Social Media:  Enhancing Your Presence Online.
