Show Me the Ethics!
Wednesday, September 18, 2019
12:00 p.m. - 1:00 p.m.
While it is important for lawyers to be compensated for their services, it is even more important for lawyers to use ethical billing and collection practices in securing such compensation. Drawing on examples provided by current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior, legal humorist Sean Carter will provide a poignant reminder of how NOT to bill clients and collect fees. And in the process, he will reinforce the relevant legal ethics principles underlying such practices, such as:
- Avoiding excessive or unreasonable fees
- The necessity for written fee agreements
- The proper use of retainers
- The need to expedite matters
- Restrictions on advertising "free consultations" and "low cost / no cost" services
- Properly handling fee disputes and non-payment of fees
Please note there will be no refunds for canceled or missed programs.
