“FIRST FRIDAY’S” WEB-SEMINAR TO BEGIN FRIDAY, MARCH 2nd

February 20, 2012

In two weeks, the Insurance Practice Group at MDJW will begin a new monthly continuing education program for those in the insurance industry to provide a one hour web-based program of interest to those who handle property or liability claims or manage insurance litigation in Texas.  Lawyers from MDJW will host each month’s one hour program on the first Friday of each month and each program will provide one  hour  of  CE  credit  from  the  Texas  Department  of  Insurance.   (Most  programs  will  qualify  for consumer protection credit.)  Each presentation will be limited to one hour and can be viewed and listened to from any desktop or laptop with audio-video capabilities.  The program will be from noon to 1 p.m. Central each “First Friday” of the month.

The March 2nd program will feature one of our firm’s founding partners, Chris Martin, who will be discussing “The Future of Bad Faith Litigation in Texas.”  The program will look at the recent changes to the bad faith standard in Texas by our state’s high court, litigation trends in such cases, claims handling implications, and practical considerations for those in the industry.  The program will be free each month. Registration and additional information will be provided next week in our Newsbrief.
