I am pleased to report that Federal Middle District Court Judge William J. Nealon has agreed to join the panel of judicial presenters at the upcoming April 20, 2011 Tort Talk Expo at the Mohegan Sun Casino. Judge William J. Nealon will assist the other members of that panel in the presentation of tips for litigants to improve their chances for success at a Pre-Trial Settlement Conference.
