We have all had them-- the clients who will not communicate, the clients who are facing outside stressors such as substance abuse or mental health issues, the clients with unrealistic expectations, the clients who refuse to pay and the clients who will not listen to our advice. This panel of experienced practitioners will offer suggestions and strategies for handling these and other challenges.

This "Off the Record" evening program is sponsored by the Family Law Section, in cosponsorship with the Administrative Law and Agency Practice Section, Antitrust and Consumer Law Section, Arts, Entertainment, Media and Sports Law Section, Courts, Lawyers, and the Administration of Justice, Labor and Employment Law Section, Law Practice Management Section, Litigation Section, and Real Estate, Housing and Land Use Section.
