New Seminar at CMCA: How to Prevent a Nuclear Verdict

May 24, 2023 from 9am-1pm at CMCA


NOTE: We have added an option to join over Zoom. 


CMCA is excited to welcome Doug Marcello, Esq., to present on the topic of Nuclear Verdicts. Learn what you can do as a company to protect yourself from nuclear verdicts: a verdict above $10 million. These verdicts are increasing in number rapidly for our industry, and Doug will help your company stay out of the courtroom, as well as help you prepare for the unthinkable of being in the courtroom.


Registration Now Open for Roadeo
