 Advocating Ethically

An Oil, Gas & Mineral Law Section CLE Webinar


Monday, July 27, 2020

Noon - 1 pm CDT

(1 hour of Ethics & Professionalism)

We have a duty to advocate for our client and diligently pursue their claims and defenses. But, we also have duties to act with candor; to expedite litigation; to assert only non-frivolous arguments; and to act with fairness toward the opposing party and their counsel. What does this mean for litigation conduct? How should this affect our conduct in discovery? This presentation will explore how attorneys can strike the proper balance, and how to ethically respond to difficult litigation situations.

Presenter: Jeff Wilson

Until this year, Jeff’s litigation practice was largely oil and gas related. Jeff Wilson is driven by a desire to help his clients in any way he can. Coming from a family full of trial lawyers, Jeff is at home in the courtroom. His career has been devoted to helping clients achieve justice, whether at trial or on appeal.

During law school, Jeff co-founded an American Association of Justice chapter, and participated in the Intensive Trial Advocacy Program, where he earned highest honors. Jeff graduated in 2014, passed the bar exam, and began working for a small firm in Ottawa, Kansas. Jeff was also the city attorney for Richmond, Kansas during this time, and enjoyed helping clients with any legal issues they had. After four years of general practice, Jeff realized he wanted to practice in Wichita and focus on litigation. So, he joined the Hinkle Law Firm and found his calling in the courtroom. While this work was extremely rewarding, Jeff wanted to focus on pursuing justice for the people who lacked it the most, rather than for corporations.

Jeff joined DeVaughn James in January, and now focuses exclusively on personal injury litigation. He is licensed in Kansas, the U.S. District Court for the District of Kansas, and the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.

In his spare time, Jeff enjoys being active in his church, serving on several Wichita Bar Association committees, playing golf, playing chess, and serving on the board of a charitable foundation. Jeff is a proud member of the Kansas Trial Lawyers Association, the Kansas Bar Association, and the Wichita Bar Association.
