MDJW First Friday Webinar - E-Discovery and Electronically Stored Information in Claims Litigation

Vicki Kurhajec and Damon Goodner - presenters

March 7, 2014

Our next First Friday will be held on March 7, 2014 at noon Central Time. 

Vicki Kurhajec and Damon Goodner, paralegals in the Austin office, will present E-Discovery and Electronically Stored Information in Claims Litigation.  In today’s litigation practice, electronic discovery affects all of us.  For adjusters, it impacts how they evaluate claims and set reserves for litigation expenses.  For attorneys, it impacts case strategy, how discovery is obtained and processed, the creation of litigation budgets and the attorney/client relationship.

Ms. Kurhajec earned her Bachelors of Business Administration from Texas State University.  She became a licensed property and casualty insurance adjuster in 1992 working as a claims litigation adjuster for Farmers Insurance handling personal and commercial lines claims.  During her eleven year tenure with Farmers, she also served on the American Arbitration Association panel for three years and participated in numerous in-house insurance seminars giving presentations on first party claims handling and coverage issues.  Ms. Kurhajec joined Martin, Disiere, Jefferson and Wisdom as a litigation paralegal in 2011.  Ms. Kurhajec has continued to maintain an active insurance license.

Mr. Goodner studied Telecommunications Engineering at DeVry and holds a Paralegal Certificate from the University of Texas at San Antonio.  He worked as a Paralegal Case Assistant at the United States Attorney’s Office in Dallas and a litigation paralegal in Dallas before joining Martin, Disiere, Jefferson and Wisdom’s Austin office in 2011.

We have applied to the Texas Department of Insurance for one hour of Texas CE credit.  Insurance professionals accredited by the Texas Department of Insurance should have their license number available during the training in order to request credit for the course.
