In every city and town in America, there has been an overwhelming reaction to the political gridlock in Washington D.C. over healthcare, economic recovery, taxes, Afghanistan (almost everything). So why can’t the lawyers in Congress who specialize in negotiating solutions to problems fix Washington? Co-hosts and attorneys J. Craig Williams and Bob Ambrogi welcome Attorney Philip K. Howard, a well-known leader of legal reform in America and founder of Common Good, to examine the problem.
Join WCM host, Attorney Alan S. Pierce from the ABA Mid-Winter Meeting of the Workers Compensation Committee with special guests discussing emerging issues such as the current MSA problem, legislative reform to make settlements in WC easier and the unforeseen issue of volunteers who have had to cross state lines in disasters such as Katrina and how that affects WC cases. You won’t want to miss the important news from guests, Attorney James A. Reiter, Chairman of the National Workers Compensation Defense Network and partner at the Michigan firm of Charfoos, Reiter, Peterson, Jones, Dorland & Hebertas well as Attorney Hervey Levin from the Dallas, Texas law firm of Hervey Levin.
