Hindsight: A Great Thing to Borrow
Hindsight is 20/20, as the saying goes. Many lawyers who are sued for malpractice have gained clarity only after it was too late.

Join speakers, Megan Zavieh, J.D. and Sally Field, J.D. to dissect malpractice cases to gain helpful insights. Megan Zavieh is an attorney and frequent author with her writing featured on blogs such as Attorney At Work and Lawyerist. Sally Field is an attorney and frequent speaker on ethics and lawyers professional liability topics.
