Life Tips from Erin Brockovich
Attendees at NCRA’s 2019 Convention & Expo in Denver, CO, heard firsthand the stories behind the movie Erin Brockovich from its namesake during the packed Premier Session. Brockovich, the renowned consumer advocate and environmental activist, shared bits of her life story, how she learned to persevere, and who her major influencers were. She attributes those influencers to helping her later in life go from unknown legal researcher to 20th-century icon as the persistent force behind the largest medical settlement lawsuit in history.
Brockovich began her address at the convention by acknowledging the importance of the human court reporter’s presence and role in the courtroom to ensure an accurate record of the proceedings and added that she was always amazed when she had the chance to watch what they did.
