Education for Attorneys

Continuing Legal Education from America’s foremost authority on Divorce-Lending Issues

Since 2008, Noel has been offering Continuing Legal Education directed mostly to Family Law attorneys. Presentations are offered to Bar Association meetings and luncheons, Family Law section meetings, Collaborative Practice groups/sections, large and small firms (one of my favorite times was with one attorney and her paralegal around their snack room table), conferences, seminars and retreats.

The key to my presentations is their usefulness and practicality. The information is critical to actually settling cases and “turning white paper into green money.” I promise at least one eyebrow raising moment in each presentation.
