“I have utilized all of the service providers that I noted in the survey and truly felt I received great service from each.  My favorite continuing legal education seminar provider, Pincus Professional Education is particularly noteworthy though.  I have attended about five Pincus seminars.  Each was phenomenally packed with useful content and had presenters/speakers of the highest skill level.  I would unhesitatingly recommend Pincus to other lawyers and am already planning my next couple of seminars with this CLE provider.”  – Quote from The Recorder’s ‘Best of CA 2013′ survey.
