It is personally and professionally gratifying to meet so many longtime colleagues in-person, including our network of LegalShield referral attorneys – some of whom we’ve worked with for years. That connection is a big part of the networking that comes from Elevate: building stronger relationships with other referral attorneys, building stronger relationships with the Provider Firm attorneys, and building stronger relationships with the people from the LegalShield corporate office,” explains Ronald Jones, Supervising Attorney at Davis Miles McGuire Gardner. Jones is presenting at a continuing legal education session titled “Ethics and Limited Scope of Law.”
Elevate’s CLE sessions focus on timely, relevant topics that are disrupting the industry, including sexual harassment in the workplace, federal employment law and independent contractors, condemnation law and limited scope law. Sessions are priced at a significant discount compared to private CLE providers.
Attendees will also be treated to a 45-minute comedic presentation and improv session from Second City, the renowned Chicago-based comedy tour de force.
LegalShield prides itself on maintaining a startup culture and mentality, and it designed the Elevate agenda to focus on issues that are most relevant to lawyers today. Topics include how technology is affecting the practice of law, how small firms can innovate to build better practices, customer service in the legal profession, and growing your business through referrals. Service and information providers including ONE400, Practice Panther, Gideon, 1Law, Clio, LawPAK, Thomson Reuters, Accel Marketing Solutions, LawDroid. will showcase their offerings at The Tech Show, a product exhibition that is specifically geared toward the legal industry.
