Hanan M. Isaacs has created a new and unique Continuing Legal Education event in New Jersey, based upon his 33 years of experience as a mediator, arbitrator, and trial lawyer in family law and general civil matters.

Presented in cooperation with the NJSBA Dispute Resolution Section and The New Jersey Association of Professional Mediators (NJAPM), this program has been produced and promoted by the NJ Institute of Legal Education, the premier provider of continuing legal education for New Jersey lawyers.

This is a ‘must attend’ program in light of the recent N.J. Supreme Court decisions regarding ADR and ethics, featuring a great panels at the Mt. Laurel location! Mr. Isaacs will moderate the panel. Panelists include Amy Wechsler, Esq.; Judge Vincent Segal (retired); Dr. Marcy Pasternak; Dr. Lee Picariello; CPA Marty Abo; and CFP Bryan Koslow.

Alternative dispute resolution is a popular tool in family law matters, whether in court or out. ADR has the ability to resolve disputes between parties without traditional legal representation or lawsuits.

Unlike court trials, dispute resolution methods can reduce or eliminate the need for costly “discovery” where each party’s counsel tries to gain information held by the other party. This program will review the ADR methods and tools you can use immediately for your client’s benefit and the children’s “best interests”.

You’ll also have a review of the ethical challenges you’re likely to face, as well as how to make sure you don’t run into other ethical problems as you proceed.
