The training, provided by attorneys with many years of hands-on family law experience, will cover initial client interviews, substantive legal issues, pleadings, and pretrial and trial practices as they relate to family law cases with domestic violence components. It will offer a comprehensive introduction to family and domestic violence law for attorneys new to this area of practice, and will also serve as a great refresher for more experienced attorneys.
