This is a total joke. Everyone knows that Attorney Marc Tovstein loves to litigate and run up client fees. He's near retirement and is stockpiling his cash. He over bills clients, forces costly litigation and IS NOT, REPEAT IS NOT AN ADVOCATE FOR COLLABORATIVE DIVORCE OR NON-LITIGATION. He loves to be in the court room to hear himself speak and his ego is the size of a skyscraper. As court employees we see him day in and day out as he bibs and bobs around the court house with the vibe of "you know me, I know me, we all love me, I love me, I'm the best, oh, look how wonderful I am, I polished my shoes, oh, money, oh, this may be my last case, I should schedule as many hearings and hear myself speak, did I mention I love myself and I think I am great, everyone knows my ego..I mean, me." Screw his clients, they are stupid and naive thinking this guy cares about their case...or their family...he's out for the cash. The gullible clients fall for his insessent need to litigate. Really - anyone putting on these courses needs to really check into each attorney's history as there is zero integrity in being on a panel like this and not acting consistently with what's coming out of your mouth. Oh, and anyone can pay and buy super lawyer status. Means zero. CONSUMERS BEWARE OF THE WOLF WHO WILL EAT YOUR MONEY AND NEVER WORK HARD TO SETTLE YOUR CASE BECAUSE HIS AGENDA DOESN'T WANT TO. WAKE UP PEOPLE. WAKE UP!!!!

With no relief in sight for underfunded, impacted courts, this year's conference focuses on case resolution outside of court and court alternatives for clients who don't want to litigate. A distinguished panel of experts will discuss how to mediate cases, represent clients in collaborative divorce, utilize private judging, and, overall, settle cases given the court's current limitations. In addition, our program will present a year-in-review session to keep attendees current on shifts in and changes to the law. Full trials are becoming increasingly rare in Family Law; they can take years to set and incur extraordinary costs. With clients demanding alternatives to expensive and protracted court battles, good negotiating skills are now essential for Family Law practitioners. In helping attorneys increase their expertise and expand their practices, CEB's Family Law Conference includes the following programs: Ethically Mediating Family Law Cases, Strategically Using Private Family Law Judges, Effective Collaborative Practice, How to Settle Every Divorce, and Family Law Year in Review. Speakers at the Family Law Conference are experts in their field and include two retired Family Law judges, attorneys who specialize in various aspects of Family Law, and a psychotherapist whose practice is devoted to mediation and collaborative divorce. They are, respectively: Hon. Jonathan H. Cannon (Ret.); Hon. Gale P. Hickman (Ret.); Diana L. Martinez; Marc S. Tovstein, CFLS; Lisa R. Veizades; Jacqueline A. Whisnant, CFLS; and Carol R. Hughes, PhD, LMFT. The conference will be held at the Embassy Suites Mandalay Beach Resort in Oxnard, an hour up-coast from Los Angeles. Attendees can enjoy the beach, the nearby Channel Islands harbor, water sports and activities, and a vibrant local restaurant scene. CEB is a program of the University of California that is cosponsored by the State Bar of California. CEB's mission is to provide practical legal resources to help California lawyers achieve success.
