Brown Bag Presentation
E-Filing Updates for The New Year and Avoiding E-Filing Difficulties

Presented by Larry Kirlin

As more state trial courts implement mandatory e-filing, the busier courts can take several days to notify the secretary or paralegal if the filing was rejected or accepted. Larry Kirlin has experience with the most common problems that prevent filings from being accepted and will share some solutions to help prepare us for successful e-filings.

Brown Bag Presentation

Presented by Sarah M. Tetlow

From Frazzled to Focused will help legal professionals get past the overwhelmed feeling we get from the demands placed on us. Time management and organization are key components to a productive workday. We are constantly under attack with interruptions, distractions, pace of modern life, technology, and too much stimuli. This presentation will equip the attendees with a series of simple, practical strategies that can be used to structure an efficient and effective day, including accomplishing the most important project of the day without feeling the overwhelm or working late into the night. Attendees will walk away feeling a sense of relief and prepared to tackle the rest of their workweek ahead of them.
