Great presentation. Great advice on tracking and electronic devices.

Would have liked court cases listed in written materials.

This course definitely increased my awareness regarding information, documents or files received that might create a problem for my client or myself.

Did not realize misdemeanor for tracking devices - updated my contract accordingly

Provided good advice for situations that many attorneys could very well be faced with in representing family law clients.
