Avoiding Malpractice and Bar Complaints 2017 *Class by Webinar*


Date & Time: Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 6:00 pm to 9:15 pm

CLE Credit: Yes

Event Description
3.0 Ethics Credit Hours

 

In recent years, more than 35,000 legal malpractice claims have been filed annually against lawyers with malprac­tice insurance. Many more complaints have been filed against those who were not insured. This class teaches daily practice and risk-prevention techniques to help reduce the possibility of a bar complaint and related mal­practice claim from being filed. Experienced attorneys will find practical, new ideas to implement, while those newer to the prac­tice of law will gain skills that will be useful throughout their legal careers. From choosing clients and cases to avoiding conflicts, com­municating effectively, and handling client funds properly (in each jurisdiction), faculty members provide examples and practical advice to help you focus on problem areas that so often lead to complaints. The major differences between relevant ethics rules in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia also are discussed.
