Wilkes & McHugh, P.A. attorney Bennie Lazzara Jr. will speak during the first day of the conference. In his lecture, "Using the Rebuttal Final Argument to Develop Damages," Lazzara will share some of his closing arguments and discuss why his approach is successful.

His accolades include being named a “Best Lawyers in America” for the last 20 years.
