Description:
Legal practice is just that: practice. Every day, lawyers make decisions that affect their clients, and possibly themselves. Many of those decisions are good, some are debatable, and a few are just dumb. Join us as we discuss some of the dumb things lawyers do, and explain how attorneys can avoid obvious mistakes arising from unthinking action or inaction. Among other things, we’ll discuss the pitfalls of holding client money, how to handle multiple client representation, the ever-present risks of disclosing confidential information, and managing social media involvement. Finally, we’ll provide guidance on preventing time and money lost in defending related claims and complaints.
