As usual, there’s a lot happening at Stevenson Klotz this month. This month Chris and Eric attended a quarterly meeting of their business development group PILMMA. This is a proactive group that helps law firms develop strategies and systems in order to give the best customer service and best legal services to our clients. Participating in this organization is a tremendous amount of work, but we hope by consistently developing our firm’s systems and services we will be a standout firm to the people who choose us to represent them. This month we also had our very fist firm planning retreat. This involved all of our attorneys and staff devoting two days to planning the implement our firm goals for 2016 and how to best live up to our firm’s core values. Chris and Eric will be attending a national seminar about “1983” lawsuits, also called civil rights lawsuits. These are very specialized cases and the goal is to stay on the cutting edge since we frequently represent clients in civil rights lawsuits who have been injured or abused by a city, county or other governmental agency.
