Message from Chairman G. David Robertson
Welcome to the Western Trial Lawyers Association renaissance! Our new Board is reigniting the WTLA’s celebrated passion for excellence — both in the courtroom and at our seminars.
The WTLA has consistently offered the highest level of continuing legal education possible for trial attorneys. Why is that? Because our speakers are the cream of the crop – the top trial lawyers in the western United States. Every year they offer astute strategies and insightful practice tips based upon their own decades of personal success in the courtroom.
But, the secret to our teaching excellence is not limited to the classroom. Small group dissection of critical courtroom techniques and tactics takes root naturally in a relaxing atmosphere where trial lawyers of all ages share their collective experiences. These small groups are not assigned – they form organically as program speakers jointly participate in conference activities outside of the meeting rooms.
What other organization provides you the opportunity to run your most difficult cases past the best trial lawyers in the country – all while sitting on a chair lift at Steamboat Springs or relaxing by a pool in Maui? Where else can you ask the top courtroom lawyer in any particular field how they would deal with the most perplexing problems presented by your cases? The WTLA’s mission is to provide all of the above twice a year at conferences which meet your highest expectations – and for 2018 we plan to exceed even that lofty goal.
I look forward to 2018 and hope to see you at one, if not both, of the upcoming conferences.
My best to all of you,
G. David Robertson
