FCRA Kickstart

On Tuesday May 10, 2022, FCRA Insight presents a 1-day Kickstart program for intermediate level FCRA practitioners in small and solo practices.  Ian Lyngklip of Lyngklip & Associates will host the program which will be held at the Wild Horse Resorts & Casino at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, AZ, just a mile or so from the Sheraton Grand.  The Kickstart will run from 8:00 AM – 6:00 PM on Tuesday (May 10, 2022) followed by a reception with other Insight attendees from past programs.  The Insight will provide breakfast, snacks, and lunch on Tuesday.   Participation is limited to 10 practitioners at a cost of $1,150.00 (see qualifications below). As always, we will refund your tuition if you aren’t totally satisfied with the program!

 The Wild Horse Resorts & Casino is a mile away from the Sheraton Grand and offers free shuttle service to the Sheraton Grand.  The Sheraton Grand also offers free shuttle service to the Wild Horse Resort & Casino, so attendees will not need a car if they choose to stay at the Sheraton.

Details and Registration on the FCRA Insight website.

 About the Program

Do other consumer programs leave you without actionable items to improve your practice and bottom line?  Does you feel as though you are working alone, rather than collaborating with your peers?  Does it feel like other program aren’t designed to help solo and small firm attorneys succeed?

 The Insight program was designed with private practitioners in mind, to provide the framework and resources that they need to effectively litigate FCRA cases to their maximum value, without having to rely on larger firms for support or guidance.  The FCRA Insight Kickstart will provide you a process for identifying and incorporating new concepts into your FCRA practice and continually improving upon it. With calculated and purposeful implementation, these processes will take FCRA attorneys from FCRA 101 to the next level.  The Kickstart will get you on the path to constant improvement of your practice, and provide new tools, pleadings, and a framework for evaluating new materials and legal theories in your FCRA practice.   This program is the foundation and tool box for later programs that will build on the skill set acquired in the Kickstart.

 Foundations of Insight

The FCRA Insight method relies upon Lean Management fundamentals to deploy, evaluate, and improve processes in your law office, with the end goal of increasing profit.  The FCRA Insight Kickstart will help practitioners to evaluate new approaches best suited to their respective offices and clients.  Along the way, we will rely upon data analysis, cognitive psychology, collaboration models, and a host of other disciplines to boost results, one process at a time.   And with each FCRA Insight Kickstart Module, we will feature the latest & greatest technology to ensure that you not only learn the aforementioned principles but are able to leave the Kickstart able to implement those principles.  (See a description of our other programs below.)

Details and Registration on the FCRA Insight website.

Kickstart Agenda

The 2022 FCRA Insight Kickstart Modules include: 

  • Understanding “Core” Cases:  Learn the importance of using identifiable fact patterns in case selection, drafting, discovery, and negotiation.  Using the concept of core cases will allow you to focus on the cases that can make you money and help streamline your processes.
  • Collaboration & Data: Learning about the value of data, identifying critical data metrics that every attorney should be tracking, and participating in appropriate data sharing to improve the results of every litigation milestone and ultimately settlement.
  • Business Processes: Understanding the role of processes in litigation, practice management, and profitability and rethinking litigation strategies for improved integration with your practice workflow to ultimately secure the best settlement results in the shortest amount of time.
  • Rules of Engagement: Developing and establishing Ground Rules to secure the discovery you need while fighting back against overbroad protective orders, unethical settlement terms, and general bullying from opposing counsel.
  • Case Setup and Intake: Recognizing the red flags early on, troubleshooting how to deal with red flags discovered down the road, and zeroing in on the cases you should be taking. 
  • Responding to Discovery: Leveraging the foundation already laid in Plaintiff’s pleadings and in Plaintiff’s Statement of the Case in the Joint Discovery Plan to weaponize Plaintiff’s responses to Defendant’s discovery to carry the theme to trial.
  • Discovering their Case: Starting with the Plaintiff and then the key third-parties and then the Defendant’s themselves, a roadmap on what to look for, how to look for it, and where to find it when they still refuse to give it to you.

Details and Registration on the FCRA Insight website.
