There are several ethical mistakes attorneys make that not only can prove costly, but can be damaging to their career. Don't fall into this trap. In this program, author and attorney Janet Sobel will lay out the four most common such mistakes, which include charging reasonable fees, failure to properly respond to questions, maintaining original documents, and a failure to consider whether insurance is available for a claim. Ms. Sobel will dig into the pertinent ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct, give helpful tips for best practices in this area, and cover a number of real life examples of misconduct from attorney malpractice cases and disciplinary proceedings.
