Network with Hundreds of Top Trial Attorneys “I don’t need to encourage any past attendees at the summit to show up for future summits, as it is such a great time, I know they will. For those who could not make it to any of the summits, or have not yet been to one, I strongly encourage you to give the gift of this summit to yourself and to your practice. This is an extraordinary group of lawyers and the criminal bar benefits bout. Particularly for my friends in the criminal bar: this is a seminar you do not want to miss.” Mark O’Mara
