Topics and Speakers

Are you a Solo/Small Firm Practitioner? Did you know that you have the highest risk of being the subject of a disciplinary or malpractice claim? Want to find out why and learn how you can reduce your risk? “The One Thing a Solo/Small Firm Practitioner Can Do to Reduce Their Risk of Becoming the Subject of a Disciplinary or Malpractice Claim.”

Allison L. Wood, Principal of Legal Ethics Consulting, P.C.


"Getting Yourself out of Hot Water: Trends, Getting to Closure, and the Interrelationship with the Malpractice Claim."
What should you do when a client believes you have failed to follow ethical or proper procedures and files a disciplinary grievance or malpractice complaint?  This presentation will discuss what's new in attorney discipline and provide practical points on how to survive an unhappy client.  It will give you some glimpse of strategies used to successfully conclude disciplinary investigations and explain how discipline and malpractice operate in tandem.

"The Infectious Client in the World of Client Mobility - Whose Problem is it Anyway?"
Your best client today could be your worst enemy tomorrow.  Learn how to protect your practice in the revolving door of client and lawyer mobility.  Sometimes we are intrepid and are tempted to take on new clients with baggage that suggests "lawyer problems".  This presentation will examine the risks of new client screening and the increased hazards which accompany clients who seek your advice after having been represented or potentially wronged by acts or advice of other lawyers.  It will also identify the risks of affiliation with other lawyers who introduce similarly troubled clients into your practice.  It will examine how the sins of other lawyers can become your problems to solve and introduce practical and ethical strategies to avoid becoming the unhappy client's next target.  Finally, it will discuss practical tips for ending a relationship in a professional, ethical and safe way. 
Thomas P. McGarry and Stacey L. Seneczko, Hinshaw & Culbertson, LLP
