Superior Court Judge Correale Stevens Added to Panel of Judges at Upcoming Mohegan Sun Seminar

On Thursday, August 5, 2010, I presented a Post-Koken Update at the Pennsylvania Defense Institute's CLE Seminar held at the Union League in Philadelphia. It was a nice turnout and a good networking event.

I now turn my attention to the final preparations for the upcoming August 18, 2010 CLE seminar being put on at the Mohegan Sun Casino in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania by the Pennsylvania Defense Institute and the Northeastern Pennsylvania Trial Lawyers Association.

One great development is that Superior Court Judge Correale Stevens has been added to the panel of judges set to speak during the ethics hour. Already on the panel is U.S. Third Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Thomas I. Vanaskie, Luzerne County Court of Common Pleas President Judge Thomas Burke, and Lackawanna County Court of Common Pleas Judge Terrence R. Nealon.

I also note that there are approximately 20 judges from around the Northeastern Pennsylvania region who have indictated that they plan to attend the cocktail reception following the seminar. Also present will be some court administrators from different counties as well as claims professionals from various insurance companies (State Farm, Progressive, GEICO, Penn Millers Insurance Company, Guard Insurance, and Erie Insurance). It should be a great networking event for all who attend.

I also note that we currently have 13 table vendors set to appear at the seminar to advertise their litigation-related services. We will be running a raffle to encourage attendees to visit the table vendors. Every time an attendee visits a vendor (you can visit any one of them as many times at you want), the attendee can put their business card or provide their name and contact info on a slip of paper to be put into a drawing.

Presently, we have two sets of Phillies tickets, a set of local Yankees tickets, and 5 separate Mohegan Sun $50 gift cards to give away. The $50 Mohegan Sun gift cards can be used the night of the event at the shops and restaurants in the casino or even to gamble.

Here's the info on the upcoming seminar--hope to see you there:
