Texas Judge - Where Technology Is Sustained

Collin County Bench Bar Conference 2017

It's time to round up all the Collin County attorneys and Judges and head over to Grapevine, Texas, for the 2017 Collin County Bench Bar Conference which will be held May 5-7, 2017, at the Hilton DFW Lakes hotel in Grapevine, Texas.  And who knew there was a dude ranch right behind the hotel???  So put on your boots and jeans and come join us for some tall tales, to lasso up some CLE hours, delicious grub, fun, networking and who knows??? There may be a few cow patties involved....  All for the low price of $650 if you register by March 15, 2017.  After that date, the price goes up to $775 so don't miss out on saving a few dollars! 

We have some fabulous speakers in the line up to include Patricia Cummings, Judge Weldon Copeland, Ike Vanden Eykel and Judge Jill Willis along with her Not For Prime Time Band.  The schedule with more details will be emailed out and we will post it here in the next few weeks. There will be at least 7 hours of CLE provided. 

Don't forget to fill out the attached form and either mail or fax it to Sydney Robison as indicated on page 2 before March 15, 2017!

  Alternatives to Litigation. Litigation is an adversarial approach. It is very expensive, increases conflict and many times proves devastating to the children involved. The bad feelings from courtroom litigation can affect you and your children the rest of your lives. On the other hand, mediation or collaborative law can result in a settlement that is less expensive, less traumatic and more creative. The choices you make now can have an enormous immediate and long term effect on you and your children. Choose wisely. Click here for more information.
