Inspector-gadgetRIVERSIDE BARRISTERS
Role of Private Investigators in Litigation

Thursday, April 10, 2014
Social: 5:30 to 6:30 p.m.
Guest Speaker: 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

MARK YOUR CALENDARS TO ATTEND THIS EVENT!

 A private investigator is routinely called upon at various stages of a civil lawsuit.

  • The case may not yet be filed – the attorney wants to find out as much information before he or she has to file a complaint.
  • Perhaps the attorney is looking for additional information to bolster the amended complaint.
  • It is also possible that litigation has been going on for years, and the attorney is trying to re-energize his case or prepare for a tough round of cross-examination.

Join Barristers as we discover how private investigators are able to provide attorneys with valuable assistance in litigation.

1 hr of MCLE will be provided by the RCBA.

  • What services does IELLA provide to the community?
  • What is expected of a new volunteer attorney?
  • Will training be provided?
  • What is the RCBA Elves Program?
  • Why was the Elves Program created?
  • How do I sign up to become involved in these projects?

ACCESS TO TOYS:
It would be greatly appreciated if attendees bring an unwrapped toy for the RCBA Elves Program. Toys collected will be distributed to underprivileged children in foster care in our community.

ACCESS TO APPETIZERS, SOFT DRINKS & BEER:
Our social will be at Terracina Brewery with beverages and appetizers gratuitously being provided by Scott & Adina Talkov.
