Serving Service Members: Issue-Spotting For The Non-Military Attorney

Speaker Panel



Presenters:
  • Hon. Megan Wagner, OC Superior Court: View From The Bench, Protections To Be Aware Of.
  • Antoinette Balta, Veterans Legal Institute: Services Provided, Discharge Upgrades, Service-Members Civil Relief Act
  • Dr. Linda Bagget, Women’s Mental Health Clinic at Long Beach VA: Military Sexual Trauma, Female Service Perspective
  • Sheila-Marie Finkelstein, AHAVA Law, P.C.: Estate Planning, How To Become A VA Accredited Attorney
  • Dallis Warshaw, Snyder Law Group: Criminal Law and Diversion Treatment Courts

The purpose of this CLE is to give the attorney with little or no military experience/ understanding a brief introduction to some of the various legal protections and issues specific to our military and veteran members, with particular attention to the female service member perspective. The goal is that practitioners determine if their clients are service members and entitled to additional protections in their particular practice area, and to understand that there may be additional obligations and responsibilities in representing service members. The presentation includes a catered lunch. 

Free Valet Parking at Andrei's with event registration.
