Post Image

A settlement mill is a team of lawyers that excels in settling cases quickly, as opposed to fighting for the compensation you deserve. They will take your case with no intention of ever going to trial. These lawyers make their money by settling a high volume of cases quickly.

I recently wrote about a communication workshop I attended for four days. This was no ordinary workshop. It was intensive, and not focused on law, but relationships, and internal and external communication.

By Jim Ballidis

Do you wonder how to be a better communicator? From a personal injury lawyer, here are a few ideas that might help.

I have studied effective communication all my career as an injury lawyer. New revelations come to me all the time. This last weekend, I spent four days in a communication workshop that focused solely on internal and external communication – the things I tell myself, and the way I communicate with others. Both are important because they influence the result of the communication.

It doesn’t matter if you are riding Thunder Mountain at Disneyland or a Tilt-A-Whirl at a local fair; accidents happen from time to time. While massive amusement parks like Disneyland or Knott’s Berry Farm have an entire staff of people making sure the rides are operating safely and efficiently, places like the OC Fair and Balboa Fun Zone do not have the same resources to dedicate to the safety of their rides.
