Credits accepted in NJ


This not-to-be-missed lecture will provide three distinct points of view on a crucial element of the civil lawsuit. Plaintiffs attorneys must work to obtain for their clients all of the money damages to which they believe their clients are entitled; defendants seek the opposite result.


Successful and seasoned trial attorneys David Dean and Glenn Dopf will advocate their conflicting positions. Plaintiffs' attorney David Dean will illustrate the many elements necessary to maximize damages. Defendants attorney Glenn Dopf will detail the methods defendants use to minimize damages.


Both will use multiple trial examples — from jury selection through summation — to support their position. The Honorable Joseph Covello, who retired from the Appellate Division, Second Department, will give an impartial insight based upon his long career as a Trial and Appellate Judge.
