He discussed initial consultations, client intake, temporary and permanent relief, mediation, children’s issues and discovery. During the webcast, he answered specific questions from attorneys.
“Practicing family law is a great way to advocate for children and helping families in crisis,” Shane said. “I am honored to present a LawProCLE course that explores all the possible ways to help people in family law matters for other attorneys new to the practice area,” he said.
The course is available on demand here for attorney Continuing Legal Education (CLE). Members of The Florida Bar are required to complete 33 hours of CLE over a three-year period. In addition to areas of practice focus, required CLE includes ethics, professionalism, substance abuse, mental illness awareness, bias elimination and technology.
