Product Description:

The decision to represent clients of moderate means is a decision each lawyer must make based on his or her own particular circumstances. Certainly, there are benefits to engaging in moderate means representation, both professionally and financially. However, regardless of your decision, you must still comply with the Washington Rules of Professional Conduct and your ethical obligations to your client. You cannot simply limit your ethical obligations based on your decision to engage in moderate means representation, limited scope representation, or some other form of discrete task representation.

This lesson, designed as part of the 7-part series Tapping the Middle: Growing Your Practice with a Moderate Means Market, covers issues of ethics and professionalism, Washington Rules of Professional Conduct and issues to consider.

After completing this lesson you will be able to:
  • List good practices of ethics and professionalism as they apply:
    • When deciding to take a case
    • After you take a case
    • Ending the client/lawyer relationship
  • Explain applicable rules of professional conduct and describe scenarios that apply to the rule
Included in the coursebook is a self-study guide designed to help you acquire more in-depth knowledge and apply the skills covered in this lesson.

Presenter: Jeanne Marie Clavere – Professional Responsibility Counsel, Washington State Bar Association
