The Daily Record
An Omaha Bar Association Lawyer Referral Service CLE (Continuing Legal Education) event – “Discovery, Defense, Divorce & Development: A CLE Mash-Up” – drew dozens of attorneys on December 5th. Stu Dornan of Dornan Lustgarten & Troia kicked off the afternoon with an examination of the “30,000 Foot View of Criminal Defense Practice in State and Federal Court.” It was an insightful look at the art of conducting a trial and set the bar high for the afternoon’s speakers. They needn’t have worried. From the “Discovery (‘e’ and otherwise) Strategies & Tips” by the panel of Matt Lathrop, Law Office of Matt Lathrop; Susan Foster, Jackson Lewis; and Sam DelSenno, D4 eDiscovery, to “Building a Business with Limited Scope Representation” by Tracy Hightower-Henne of Hightower Reff Law, the quick, concise and informative sessions rolled along in a flash. Then Jodie Haferbier McGill of McGill Law gave “A Primer on Collaborative Divorce,” sharing knowledge earned through much experience. Susan Koenig of Koenig Dunne wrapped up the fast-paced day with a lightning round of tips for “Balancing Solo: A New Look at Letting in Support.” She prompted the participants to pair off and share some thoughts on how to lessen stress and increase satisfaction in their jobs. And she managed to end at precisely 4:05 p.m., as advertised. It was a Mash-Up to remember. Lawyers earned 2.5 CLE hours and all proceeds went to the Lawyer Referral Service. A win-win for sure.   CLICK HERE FOR MORE PHOTOS
