What attendees have said about Andrew Abraham’s speaking engagements:
- “Spectacular lecture. Lots of great, great material. One the most helpful lectures I have been to in a long time.”
- “I learned a lot about the depth of concussion-based injuries and secondary impacts.”
- “Andrew Abraham’s presentation was very useful to me.”
- “Mr. Abraham had lots of concrete information that will be of use to my practice.”
- “Andrew Abraham’s presentation was exceptional and provided solid, practical tips and suggestions that can be used in the difficult traumatic brain injury cases we handle.”
- “The feedback has been great and attendees really enjoyed your presentation.”
- “Our next speaker is Andrew Abraham. You guys can probably tell by what he interjected that he is incredibly superior attorney particularly in the field of neuroimaging. If you ever have a question about neuroimaging get him on the phone, and by the way, he will answer. He will respond. We have a group of lawyers that I call are cabal. Which is supposed to be a rapid response team. They are now more afraid of neuroimaging than any other area of science. It used to be neuropsychology, now it’s neuroimaging. So they are creating what I call “fantasy science” all the time. And he’s on top of it. In addition, this year the traumatic brain injury litigation group – we did a nationwide multi-city study of the public’s attitude towards sports injuries and TBI, CTE, etc. And he took of his own time, and his own expenses, to go to the majority of those cities to make sure that things were being done in such a way that we would get the most information possible. I’ve never seen somebody give so much as Andrew did this last year, so our next speaker, Andrew Abraham – superior lawyer – he knows the science.”
