Ortho Spine Conference

Reserve Your Room at Omni La Costa Resort & Spa

With this conference we plan to bridge the gap between doctors and lawyers, and educate both as it relates to chronic pain syndromes, orthopedic & spine injuries and litigation. In two days, top tier lawyers and doctors will provide you with the tools needed to effectively communicate complex injuries in simple terms. This will not be like any conference that you have ever attended. We believe conferences should be fun and enjoyable for the family. Not only will you grow as a professional but there will be live music entertainment, fun for all ages and exceptional networking opportunities between the plaintiff bar, defense bar, and the medical field; this conference will have it all. Most importantly, you can feel good knowing that all proceeds will be donated to a non-profit charity. We will see you soon at the beautiful Omni La Costa Resort!
