With court closings, dismissal of cases, and giant backlogs, the American court system is in crisis. In this edition of Lawyer2Lawyer co-hosts and attorneys, Bob Ambrogi and J. Craig Williams join Attorney Laura Abel from the Brennan Center for Justice at NYU School of Law and Attorney Stephen N. Zack, former President of the American Bar Association, to take a look at the impact of massive budget cuts on our courts, the cases, the staff and just how long this will all last.
Legal funding barely existed just a few short years ago and now is perhaps the fastest emerging financial trend in the legal business community. On Lawyer2Lawyer, Law.com bloggers and co-hosts, J. Craig Williams and Robert Ambrogi, will explore what’s new in the industry of legal funding, talk to a plaintiff attorney about what goes into a case with the assistance of legal funding and discuss the ethics and the statues/regulations that apply to legal funding. Lawyer2Lawyer welcomes Gary Chodes, founder and CEO of Oasis Legal Finance, Robert Hawley, Deputy Executive Director of the State Bar of California and Ron Kramer, Plaintiff Attorney out of Utah, to tell us a little more about the Legal Funding Industry.
