“Dr. Wertheim was a breath of fresh air to the Long Beach Bar Association. Her presentation on Analyzing the Language of Bias was relevant to the practice of law and to everyday life. Attorneys of various practices including both transactional work and litigation found her program interesting. We look forward to having her speak to our organization soon.”

“MCLE presentations on Bias can often be repetitive and off-putting, making their positive effect on an attorney's future practices minimal.  Dr. Wertheim's presentation tackled the topic from a different angle, focused on identifying and minimizing bias from a scientific standpoint. Our attorneys were attentive and engaged with the topic, and we received many positive comments, as well as requests for a follow-up talk!”
