Miller attends seminar

Todd Miller attended a 3-hour GAL educational seminar in Jefferson City, MO recently.  This course is mandatory review for all attorneys serving as guardian ad litems in Mid-Missouri courts.

“Guardians ad litem have extensive power and responsibility. Their duties are greatest in cases involving children, where they investigate, attend to the child’s emotional and legal needs, monitor the child’s family, and seek to shield thechild from the often bruising experience of a lawsuit. Their function as officers of the court is also extensive: in addition to compiling relevant facts, interviewing witnesses, giving testimony, and making recommendations to the court onissues of custody and visitation, they ensure that all parties comply with court orders.”
