On Nov. 20, Gordon & Rees Los Angeles partner Phillip R. Maltin will discuss reading behavior and uncovering dishonesty using proven scientific techniques at the 2014 Southern California Fraud Investigators’ Association Conference.
During the program titled “I Can Read You,” to be held from 1:15 p.m. to 3:15 p.m., Maltin will teach attendees how to identify facial expressions that broadcast a person’s emotions, and body movements that betray a person’s real motives — even if his or her words tell a different story. He also will provide tools to recognize subtle behaviors that deliver unintended information associated with dishonesty.
Maltin is a trial lawyer and member of Gordon & Rees’s Employment Law and Commercial Litigation Practice Groups. As a nationally recognized speaker, he combines his knowledge of substantive law with experience gained as a criminal prosecutor and attorney in private practice. Maltin prosecutes criminal cases for the city of Los Angeles through the Fellowship Program of the prestigious Trial Advocacy Project, where he is a credentialed instructor. He also is nationally known as the creator of the READ System used to evaluate body language. Maltin is recognized as a Southern California Super Lawyer, an elite distinction given to no more than 5 percent of the Southern California Bar.
The conference will be held Nov. 18-20 at the Riviera Palm Springs Hotel, 1600 N. Indian Canyon Drive. For more information, click here.
