CLEonline.com is pleased to present a special online CLE course on Offers of Judgement under Fed.R.Civ.Pro. 68 and Texas Rules of Civil Procedure 167, "Attorneys Fees as Weapons". This course features a streaming audio presentation by Mr. Herb Kraft, in which he discusses the issues outlined below. You can access this program on demand at any time during the course of the seminar session. This audio presentation is accompanied by cases, ethics opinions and materials that can be included in employee manuals and employee training.



Some of the subjects to be discussed during this course include:

  • Basics of the most enigmatic of the federal rules - Rule 68, Offers of Judgment

  • Advanced use of offers in class action, civil rights, injunctive relief and multiple plaintiff cases

  • Ethics and professionalism in counseling clients on the effects of offers

  • Texas Rule 167 basics

  • Appropriate use of either offer scheme in highly aggressive attempts to settle




The speaker for this course is Mr. Herb Kraft, an attorney and the author of several software programs used by attorneys for over 20 years to generate attorney-client employment arrangements. He has personally applied for fees from state and federal courts at the trial and appeal levels in over 400 cases. Kraft has testified as an expert in fees in state and federal court proceedings. Kraft graduated from Florida State University School of Law in 1983 with high honors, and began practicing in creditor's rights law, and later acted as counsel in several election challenges and civil rights claims. Kraft is now primarily a consultant to multi-national firms on computer software licensing, but still advises law firms on attorneys' fees issues. He resides in Redondo Beach, California.
