The Fear Factor - How Good Lawyers get into Bad Ethical Trouble (2 hrs. CLE)

The scariest stories that lawyers hear are those tales where responsible lawyers who care about acting in an ethically appropriate way end up getting into disciplinary trouble. In this program, Stuart Teicher, Esq., "the CLE Performer" reviews key rules that most lawyers sort-of know but might not appreciate in detail. Learn the key things to watch out for in misrepresentation (Rule 4.1), conflicts (Rule 1.7), reporting misconduct (Rule 8.3), and more. You'll leave this seminar a safer, stronger attorney.
