ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • Mastering the Deposition. Sweeney, Mason Wilson & Bosomworth is happy to announce that Shareholder Kurt Wilson will be presenting techniques for deposing expert witnesses at a seminar on February 23, 2018 at the Park Central Hotel in San Francisco. Many times, the ability to plan and take outstanding depositions determines the value of your case, the outcome of dispositive motions, and who wins at trial. Along with other noted trial attorneys, the seminar will also include segments on preparing witnesses for depositions, the use of deposition testimony at trial.

  • Employment Law Presentations. SMWB is proud to present a series of employment seminars designed to instruct employers on the best ways to protect themselves from violating California employment law, including 1) misclassification of exempt employees and independent contractors; 2) wrongful termination and retaliation; 3) failure to properly pay employees for all hours worked; 4) wage statement violations; and 5) failure to provide proper meal and rest breaks. Please contact SMWB for information and additional dates.
