In 2005, Brian presented at the 6th World Congress on Brain Injury in Melbourne, Australia. As our legal team strives to stay on the cusp of brain injury research, particulary as it relates to our clients, their recovery and rehabilitation, we have consistently sent delegates to this conference over the years. Barbara was due to attend this year’s conference, but has recently had to cancel in light of an upcoming trial at the same time.
