Everyone comes to the table with certain biases. In this seminar, those socio, cultural, economic and religious issues will be discussed so that attendees can have a better understanding and foundation into why and how people will react when presented with certain situations. The intent is to offer insight to assist attendees in their approach to these situations so that the claim can be resolved short of having to get to the litigation stage and if not, what effect such reactions will have on verdict values.
