"Engaging and articulate facilitator, clear and well organized presentation, great content. "
James Ficaro,
The Weiser Law Firm



"This is my third or fourth course with the Likeable Lawyer. Just like with my previous experiences, this course caused me to think about an aspect of representing real people - being aware of my clients' expectations that is often forgotten, taken for granted, or assumed to be handled. Thank you for giving me new skills to help me meet and exceed client expectations. "
