Very well prepared and presented!

As a former NYC Prosecutor moving ti TN, I was fascinated with this CLE. Very well done.

As a local law enforcement agency attorney, I help with the City Attorney with nuisance actions and this course offered some insight to the issues we may come across.

Took this course for the content regarding the use of the nuisance law presented by the ADA of Knox County. The presentation was informative and useful.
