Mastering the Friendly Hearing
Date: May 24, 2023 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
A personal injury suit brought on behalf of a minor or incompetent is a very specialized type of case that will require a “friendly hearing”. This special miscellaneous proceeding is held before a Civil Division Judge who will hold a hearing and enter an order with respect to any monetary award on behalf of a minor or incompetent.
At this brand new program, a certified civil trial attorney, joined by the Passaic County Surrogate will deliver an A-Z presentation that will equip you to handle your next Friendly Hearing.
This virtual conference is conveniently scheduled during lunch, and will discuss:
- What types of PI cases are filed on behalf of children and incompetents?
- What is a friendly hearing?
- Statute of limitations concerns
- What happens to money a child/incompetent receives in a lawsuit?
- Friendly hearing rules and procedures
- Things to be aware of
- Tips for a smooth “Friendly”
