Yakety Yak! Do Call Back!: The Ethical Need for Prompt Client Communication

While it is important to comply with every obligation of the ethics canon, the obligation to promptly communicate with the client may be the most important. Lawyers who flaunt this rule leave their clients with no choice but to contact the state bar in a desperate attempt to seek answers to their questions. And, of course, by that point, the disciplinary authorities will have a long list of questions of their own. 

In this insightful webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter providex lawyers with practical tips for how to meet the increasingly difficulty of burden of talking, emailing and texting to each client's content.

Technical Fouls: Even Minor Ethics Violations Can Have Major Consequences

When it comes to ethics violations, there is no such thing as a minor or "technical" foul. All ethics violations are serious matters, evidencing a breach of the trust that has been placed in the lawyer. As a result, lawyers must avoid falling into the mindset that a particular violation is "no big deal." 

To make this case, noted legal humorist Sean Carter chronicles a number of recent ethics cases in which lawyers were surprised to discover that even minor ethics violations can have major consequences.
