The Ethical Need for Prompt Client Communication (1 hour of Ethics)

While it is important to comply with every obligation of the ethics canon, the obligation to promptly communicate with the client may be the most important. Lawyers who flaunt this rule leave their clients with no choice but to contact the state bar in a desperate attempt to seek answers to their questions. And, of course, by that point, the disciplinary authorities will have a long list of questions of their own.

In this insightful webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will provide lawyers with practical tips for how to meet the increasingly difficult of burden of talking, emailing and texting to each client's content.
In this insightful webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter will provide lawyers with practical tips for how to meet the increasingly difficult of burden of talking, emailing and texting to each client's content. In doing so, he will draw upon current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior to provide poignant reminders of the consequences of failing to meet the requirement. In particular, this webinar will cover:

  • The shortening window for "prompt" client communication
  • Managing multiple communication avenues
  • The reason for most failures of communication
  • Avoiding compounding the initial error
  • Dealing with the "unreasonable" client
  • Ensuring effective communication
