Are you keeping a watchful eye to ensure you are not only complying with the model rules of professional conduct, but also taking steps to protect yourself from malpractice? Join us for just one hour and get a review of seven of the most common issues that lead to ethical problems in any kind of legal setting. Join a professional liability defense lawyer as she explores best practices and the applicable Model Rules of Professional Conduct and ethics opinions that guide us through the potential pitfalls with: - client communications - joint representations - texting with clients - conflicts arising out of relationships with opposing counsel - returning a client’s file - ABA Formal Ethics Opinion 503 and the No Contact Rule - prospective client conflicts – when can they be waived and what needs to be in a waiver
