Attorney Francavilla Speaks at a Memphis Bar Association Seminar


On Thursday, March 4, 2021, Attorney Tim Francavilla presented a Memphis Bar Association (MBA) seminar titled, “Criminal Law Section: Marijuana & DUI Laws,” along with Assistant District Attorney General Vanessa Murtaugh. The course was hosted via Zoom and worth 2.0 General CLE Hours.

The discussion and learning objectives of the seminar include:
