Davis, a private mediator and the sole proprietor of ADJ Mediation Services, to discuss the ethics of structured settlements for lawyers and mediators. Larry, Teddy and Seth take a look at the preparation of a structured settlement proposal, the duties of the plaintiff attorney when advising the plaintiff on a structured settlement, the area of public benefits and the impact of the ethical rules on mediations.
On this edition of Ringler Radio, host Larry Cohen welcomes Attorney Dave H. Gardner out of Newport Beach, CA, to give us an update on constructive receipt. Larry and Dave discuss why constructive receipt is often an overlooked issue in the structured settlement industry and how to address it on the front side of the settlement process.
Attorneys are focused on the client’s lawsuit or the defense of the client in a lawsuit and may not be prepared for the regulations we all need to comply with in terms of the actual receipt of the client’s money in a settlement award in a lawsuit. On this Ringler Radio show, hosted by Larry Cohen from Ringler Associates, you’ll get all the facts about constructive receipt from our expert guests: Doug Brand, Senior Vice President, Platinum Insurance Marketing, which is the exclusive marketing arm of the Aviva Life Structured Settlements Annuity program and Attorney Nicole Waldert, who is in-house Counsel for Aviva.
