Substance abuse, especially with alcohol is a well known problem in our profession. There are many CLE courses about how to recognize and treat the problem. Mr. Gwilliam’s course discusses the issue in a more personal and real way. He will tell his engaging, colorful, and interesting story of his own struggles with alcohol during his long trial career. He will also give some down to earth and practical advice about how to avoid the mistakes he made. Additionally, he will address the stress issues related to practicing law with an emphasis on how to deal with our losses. His courses have received rave reviews for many years.
Gary Gwilliam is considered one of the best consumer trial attorneys in the state. His reputation and skill in representing seriously injured plaintiffs is well known.

He has handled major cases in every area of consumer law, including serious automobile and construction accidents, products liability, medical malpractice, bad faith insurance, civil rights (including police misconduct), wrongful termination and employment discrimination and harassment, and has recently concentrated more in employment law.
A noted lecturer and motivational speaker, he has conducted seminars and workshops around California and the United States for many years. He is the author of numerous articles on California consumer law and is frequently called upon to serve as an expert witness on the standard of care for lawyer’s conduct.
