Friday Night Seminar:

Divorce in the Digital Age
This seminar will examine the multitude of issues attorneys and clients now face when navigating divorce and family law matters in a world where technology is increasingly integrating itself into the divorce process.  We will address how attorneys can incorporate new technologies to their benefit and the benefit of the client.  We will also address the many ethical pitfalls, which have become more and more prevalent with technological advances.  We will also hear from our judicial panelists, both of whom are also experienced in civil practice to give further insights on technologies they have seen used or used themselves in their divisions.
