A special thank you to NBI for inviting me to speak about legal ethics at their “Estate Administration Boot Camp” in Hollywood, Florida this year.
There is still time to register or get the audio CLE, here.
Some (unusual) ethical issues we covered:
Statistics on Florida Bar disciplinary actions (what are your chances of being Bar Complainted?)
Can you ask your client for a gift?
To whom do you owe a duty as escrow agent?
How do you notify clients when you leave a law firm?
Can you lie to a Bar investigator?
Can you tell a Bar officer to F*** off?
Can you appear before a judge who is your Facebook friend?
Can you rely on a legal ethics iPhone app?
Can you threaten another lawyer with a Bar complaint?
Can you be drunk at a CLE?
You can test your skills in the 11-part questions and answers, here.
