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

The August 3rd program will feature one of the firm’s partners, Ms. Barrie Beer, who will be discussing appraisal issues of interest to insurers with Texas claims.  The program will look at the recent legal decisions on appraisals in Texas, recent claim and litigation trends involving appraisal, and practical considerations for those considering making an appraisal demand or who are currently in the middle of appraisals in Texas.  Barrie’s presentation will include umpire issues, scope of appraisal issues, the effects of appraisal, and other hot issues in current Texas appraisals.  The program is FREE.  This Friday’s program can be listened to on any computer and log-in information will be sent upon completing a very short registration process.

To register for this free CE program, send an email to:  ce@mdjwlaw.com.  If the email contains the words “register” or “First Fridays” (or anything else close), we will reply with the necessary log-in information for Friday’s program.  We hope you will join us for this Friday’s program on “Appraisals in Texas: Hot Issues.”
