Brooks Pierce attorneys Tanisha Palvia and Sarah Saint recently spoke at the North Carolina Bar Association’s (NCBA) “Professionalism for New Attorneys” continuing legal education (CLE) program. The program provided each attendee with a full year of CLE credit and is complimentary for newly licensed attorneys.
Palvia presented on dealing with the courts and advised participants on how to positively influence their presence in the courts, examining Rule 3.3 and 11, courtroom decorum, and setting realistic goals for their legal practice.
Saint spoke as part of a panel, “What I Didn’t Learn in Law School,” where she joined fellow members of NCBA’s Young Lawyers Division in sharing tips, experiences and other how-to’s with new attorneys.
Palvia represents individuals and organizations facing government investigations, white-collar criminal charges, and civil litigation. She is also successful in conducting internal investigations given her experience as a former Assistant District Attorney in Manhattan. She is well-versed in civil and criminal proceedings and has extensive bench and jury trial experience.
Saint advises and litigates on behalf of public and private educational institutions and school boards on an array of education law issues, including special education and disability issues, civil rights laws and tort claims. She also represents businesses in a variety of industries to resolve disputes, litigating in state and federal court when necessary. Saint has a particular focus on diversity and civil rights issues, including issues related to race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability and religion.
