The New Family Law Client ~
The Initial Stages of Pleadings and Temporary Matters

Friday, October 19, 2018 ~ Noon to 4pm

St. Petersburg Yacht Club, Harborview Room (Upstairs)

Join us as we provide an overview of initial steps and procedures for establishing a new family 
law case. Learn how to conduct a proper client consultation that allows the attorney to effectively 
gather the right information from their client, educate the client on the legal process and the cost
of litigation, all while exercising empathy for the emotional impact. Also learn how to properly plead
or all appropriate relief for your client. The Honorable Jack Helinger will join us to discuss Temporary
Matters in Family Law proceedings with a focus on Expedited Motions and Emergency Motions.

Presented by the Marital & Family Law Section/Chair Derek J. Byrne ~ Vice-Chair Alexandra V. Saab
