All-Star Lineup of Philadelphia Trial Lawyers Provides Opening Day Pre-game Excitement at Pennsylvania Association for Justice April 7th “Stars of the Bar” Panel
Just a few hours before the Phillies take the field for their April 7th home opener, a team of six standout trial lawyers, widely acclaimed all stars in the legal profession, will be giving insightful and invaluable coaching pointers as part of a special continuing legal education program sponsored by the Pennsylvania Association for Justice (PAJ). “In my nearly two decades with the association, this is one of the most accomplished panels of master trial lawyers we’ve every assembled; what a great learning opportunity for attorneys, in every discipline and every level of practice”, according to Lisa Ginsburg, Esq., PAJ’s Senior Director for Education. Moderator Michael F. Barrett, Esq., added, “Every participant has a well earned reputation for being not just a heavy hitter but a cleanup hitter. Space is limited and, for good reason, we are expecting a sellout for this once-in-a-season event. I’m expecting calls to go into extra innings.”
