JSH Reporter Fall 2014 - Page 3

WELCOMECONTENTS 003 MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR EDITOR: Lori Voepel EMAIL: lvoepel@jshfirm.com BIO: jshfirm.com/lorilvoepel Welcome to the Fall Edition of the JSH Reporter! After a successful re-launch of the JSH Reporter over the Summer, we are thrilled to publish our Fall Edition. If you are a new reader of the JSH Reporter, welcome! We have designed this publication to provide information about changes in the law and how these affect a variety of industries, as well as to provide updates on what is happening within our firm. In this issue, you’ll find articles on family educational rights, implied waiver of the attorneyclient privilege, changes in anti-deficiency protection, the right to attorney fee awards, and tips on how to improve your mediation success. Additionally, you’ll find appellate highlights, cases of note, recent JSH accomplishments and upcoming firm events. If you haven’t already registered for our upcoming firm seminar, don’t delay! On November 5th, JSH will host a free full-day educational seminar for our clients and potential clients at the Phoenix Convention Center. The morning half will focus solely on governmental liability issues. In the afternoon, the firm will kick off its annual seminar titled: “It’s All Fun And Games Until Someone Gets Hurt.” You won’t want to miss our entertaining and educational new twist on an old favorite, the Hollywood Squares, which we have dubbed the “JSH Squares.” The seminar will qualify for 3 hours of CLE in Arizona and CE credit in 30 states. The day will be packed with useful information, networking and fun, and will end with a networking cocktail reception. We always appreciate your thoughts and feedback on this publication. What do you want to read about? What interests you? Share your ideas with me at lvoepel@jshfirm.com. Keep an eye out for the Winter issue of the JSH Reporter to be published in January 2015. In the meantime, have a safe and happy holiday season, and hopefully we will see you at one or both of our seminars on November 5th.
