Discovery in FCRA litigation is complex and compounded by defense counsel that feign ignorance and systematically work to maintain a veil of secrecy over their clients’ credit reporting activities. This seminar is intended to lift that veil by discussing common defense tactics aimed at frustrating your ability to conduct discovery as well as providing an overview of evidence essential to building your case.  

What You Will Learn

•  How to identify the evidence you need to win your case.
•  How to avoid common defense tactics aimed at frustrating the discovery process. 
•  How to leverage the discovery process to maximize your clients’ recovery.
