Details of the Annual Firm Meeting and Litigation Communication Workshop
Burdette & Rice attorneys traveled to Los Angeles, California for their 2017 annual firm retreat. The highlight of the retreat was a full day workshop with a veteran actor who trains attorneys in communication skills. The focus was on subtle forms of communication strategies to be employed by the firm’s litigators in representing Texas clients in will contests, breach of fiduciary duty cases, and related probated litigation including guardianship disputes. Included in the training were techniques to interpret both verbal and non-verbal messages received from an opponent or an opponent’s attorney whether during negotiations, depositions, mediation or trial. The firm had additional meetings and instruction regarding its never-ending quest for improved client services and satisfaction with the major focus on obtaining favorable results for our clients.
