Whitmont Launches "Center for Legal Education"

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2006 -- Recognizing the need to provide continuing education within the legal industry, Whitmont Legal Technologies, Inc., a Los Angeles based litigation support and electronic discovery services consulting company, today announced that it has launched the "Whitmont Center for Legal Education." The purpose of the Center is to provide on-site and off-site MCLE classes for lawyers, paralegals and litigation support professionals in areas related to litigation support and electronic discovery. John Breen, Director of Legal Education at Whitmont, heads the center. The center features a variety of curricula, targeted to law firms and corporations, and is also available for industry conferences.

"The marketplace has clearly shown it has a perpetual need for objective and comprehensive continuing education," stated Tony Ramsey, Whitmont President. Art Skaran, Whitmont VP of Business Development, agrees, and stated, "With so many legal professionals trying to stay abreast of myriad new standards and precedents, we believe opening the center is the best method to meet the demand."

Having joined Whitmont in 2004, Mr. Breen has been instrumental in the company's technology shift to offer eDiscovery solutions and has championed its determination to provide CLE classes. Formerly a practicing attorney specializing in class action suits, Breen authors, deploys and presents relevant curriculum with a fresh perspective. "Our presenters do an excellent job keeping the classroom time enjoyable and productive, a key for improving retention level," Breen said.

With the advent of the digital revolution within the litigation support industry, Breen acknowledges the importance of keeping the company's customer base informed with only pertinent information. With his extensive resume of practicing law, he can attest to the many challenges law professionals face in terms of staying current. "My own desktops are chock-full of data, so I need to bookmark sources I know I can relate to," he said. "That's why our CLE programs are unique; they're written and presented by lawyers, for lawyers," Breen concluded.
