Elisa Eisenberg, Founder and CEO of Center for Legal Practice Reform (LPR), has been tapped by Live and Learn Bethesda’s Beverly Amsterdam to conduct a “lunch and learn” seminar titled, Need A Lawyer? How to Navigate the Attorney/Client Relationship. The seminar will take place on Wednesday, November 13, 2013 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at Live and Learn Bethesda’s offices, located at 4805 Edgemoor Lane, Bethesda, Maryland 20814.
LPR’s seminar description can be found on page 11 of the Fall 2013 Class Guide:
Almost every person, business, and organization will, at one time or another, need the services of a lawyer. All will choose an attorney that they likely do not know, assume they will be well represented, and believe their issue will be resolved satisfactorily for a reasonable amount of money. What few will suspect, and what you should know, is that the deck is stacked against you. On their websites, attorneys represent themselves as knowledgeable and competent, yet you have only their word that they are experts in their advertised fields. There is no objective way to confirm that they will do a good job, to foresee whether they will lead you down the right path, or to know whether they will bill you too much. This presentation will provide valuable insight into the attorney/client relationship and how to navigate it.
Live and Learn Bethesda was founded by Beverly Amsterdam as “a non-profit organization whose mission is to enrich the community through interesting, informative and stimulating classes for people of all ages.” LPR is proud that Bev has added us to her roster.
