Life Tip: Start Your Day Right!

 
  • Would You Like to Quickly Develop Your Dream Civil Law Practice? 
For many years I've provided mentoring to many less experienced California lawyers. Unlike when I started practicing in 1980, today very few new lawyers get mentoring to help them learn how to practice law the right way. To address this need, I've created Lawyer Master Mentoring™ to help lawyers throughout the U.S. learn how to practice law and create their dream civil law practices. I offer both a 12-week online video course and one-on-one Lawyer Master Mentoring™ sessions.

Law Tip: Take the Long View! 
 
The practice of law is not a sprint. It's a marathon. Newly admitted lawyers often make the mistake of taking on as much work as possible in order to make money. But, taking on too many cases doesn't work out well!  It can lead to high stress, mistakes and burnout, not great results and satisfaction. In this week's blog video, I discuss...

New Medical Malpractice Case

 

The Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act, commonly known as MICRA, has been on the books in California since 1975. One of its provisions limits non-economic damage awards to a maximum of $250,000. You'd think that California courts would have determined all of the possible MICRA issues, but that's not the case. Just last month, the California Supreme Court issued a new decision regarding MICRA that I discuss in the video above.

In addition to helping lawyers with my Lawyer Master Mentoring™ services, I help California lawyers easily keep up with the new case law in their practice areas by publishing California Case Summaries™.

New Case Discussing Settlements

California Courts of Appeal
Settlement

CSAA Insurance Exchange v. Hodroj (2021) _ Cal.App.5th _ , 2021 WL 5631492: The Court of Appeal affirmed the trial court's order granting plaintiff's motion for summary judgment in an action by plaintiff carrier against defendant for breaching his agreement to settle a personal injury claim for the policy limit of $100,000. When parties agree on the material terms of a contract with the intention to later reduce it to a formal writing, failure to complete the formal writing does not negate the existence of the initial contract. The Court of Appeal concluded that the communications between defendant's lawyer and plaintiff reflected a settlement which would be later memorialized in...
