    I attended my first ACI conference in 2008. What I learn at these conferences has made me a better lawyer and saved my company and our clients an incredible amount of money. Beyond this, through ACI I have developed relationships with litigators who defend the nation’s largest financial institutions and dined with the judges and the regulators who are shaping our industry. I get to go to a lot of conferences. ACI is, hands down, my favorite series.

    I am proud to say that I was involved in ACI's first ever Bad Faith Conference as one of the planners and keynote speakers decades ago (when I had hair!). ACI does a nice job of getting excellent speakers from BOTH side of the table to discuss current issues. I have presented over the years, but not in consecutive years. ACI does a good job of rotating speakers and keeping it fresh!
