Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) April 12, 2016
Legal, expert speaker, Betsey Neely received national recognition as an “Elite Speaker” from FreeSpeakerBureau.com. The Atlanta, GA Lawyer was acknowledged for helping families and small business lower legal costs through free presentations to association groups and nonprofits.
"The costs of legal services in metro areas often exceed $400 per hour. Quite often that money could be put to better use." says the Atlanta, GA lawyer.
Neely uses her legal expertise to share expert advice about how to lower legal costs, prevent law suits and work with a lawyer - should you need one. Neely offers pro bono legal advice as a legal expert speaker to associations, club, nonprofit, and small business meetings and conferences.
In recognition for her willingness to provide her expert legal advice and her proven commitment to excellence in public speaking, Betsey has earned "Legal Expert Speaker" status with FreeSpeakerBureau.com, a professional website platform which matches expert speakers with audiences using a proprietary matching process that’s similar to the technology used by Internet dating websites.
“The LAST place you want to resolve a conflict is in a court of law,” is Neely’s unique message. She refers to her services to individuals and small businesses as “Pre-Legal,” which means Neely gives counsel before a lawyer is hired to determine if some other type of professional help would be better. If legal counsel is absolutely necessary, she teaches individuals and business owners how to hire and manage a lawyer for the best results and at the most affordable costs.
Neely has been a pioneer in the Atlanta legal community in many areas of law during her career. As counsel to the Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia she developed a statewide conflict resolution program that became the model for universities around the world. Now, the Atlanta, GA lawyer is on a mission to use her expertise to help individuals and small business owners resolve conflicts and stay out of legal trouble.
Betsey has been named a "Champion of Justice" by the Georgia Legal Services Program, a statewide program for low income clients which she was involved in founding. She is a "Distinguished Professor" of Forensic Psychology at Argosy University, and is honored both as a "pre-eminent lawyer" and a "pre-eminent woman lawyer" by Martindale Hubbell, a directory whose ratings represent the opinions of judges and peers within the legal profession.
To receive her latest recognition as “Legal Expert Elite Speaker” from FreeSpeakerBureau.com, Neely completed a rigorous training program and earned endorsement by demonstrating a high level of expertise throughout a comprehensive vetting and verification process. The Atlanta, GA lawyer joined FreeSpeakerBureau as a legal expert in October 2015.

Ethics guidelines for members discourage speakers from giving a “hard sell” for their services or premiums. Thousands of meeting planners and expert speakers throughout the U.S., Canada, and the UK have joined and are using the website to connect every day for free.
Not just a database of public speaker profiles, FreeSpeakerBureau.com is an interactive platform where organizations can post “Guest Speaker Wanted” listings up to a year in advance, which will then be automatically matched with expert speakers using PerfectMatch technology.
