This seminar is a rapid fire, straight from the lawyer’s mouth list of things that the community may not know about the law. The topics include traffic violations, criminal law, probation, family law, landlord/tenant, and bankruptcy. There is also a question and answer segment for the community to ask the lawyers questions about their presentations.
