What To Expect At This Year’s Annual Seminar

By Chris Faenza, President ASCDC

The Annual Seminar is our biggest event of the year, where there will be great opportunities to network with fellow civil defense lawyers, guests from both the insurance world and private business, current and retired judges, as well as many exhibitors and sponsors who will show you the latest products and services to help you in your practice. There will be topical and informative educational programs, as well as the ever-popular cocktail reception and a great keynote speaker!

This year, we are returning to the JW Marriott at LA Live, which is an exciting venue with many choices for dining, entertainment, and even “star” gazing. Should you choose to sample the entertainment at Staples Center, some 100 yards from the JW Marriott, you can “Feel the Love Tonight” with Sir Elton John on January 30th.

Can’t decide whether you want to see the Lakers with King James, or the LA Clippers? No need to decide, you can see them both on Thursday, January 31st (after the cocktail reception, of course). If you choose neither, rest assured that you can meet our own All-Stars and defense bar Royalty at the educational seminars. To add to your enjoyment of the event, book a room at the JW Marriott through the reserved room block for ASCDC.
