Ultimate Update 2023

This annual event has become the program that family law practitioners wait for all year
long. The one nobody wants to miss. For the past several years, Ultimate Update was “Sold Out” in several locations and we had to turn people away. This program has become so popular that we receive pre-registrations before we even publicize the event.
