How many times have you been ripped off because you did not have or did not understand a contract? Plenty, right? This seminar will help you understand what you need in your contracts and how to understand them. We will break it down and make it easy for everyone to understand.

In addition, we will be making an introduction to the Volunteer Lawyers for the Art. The program provides pro bono legal assistance through volunteer attorneys on specific client requests for the Miami-Dade region. This is a program that you really need to know about.
