Justin O'Brien presents as a panelist for the American Bar Association's Section of Litigation as a panelist on a program entitled: "Roadshow 2.0: Precision Advocacy Reinventing Motion Practice to Win- Boston" at the Moakley Court House. In this program, the speakers will discuss the motion practice as a primary means by which lawyers persuade judges.
