This program was a live seminar and webcast presented on May 2, 2017, in Seattle, WA. If you attended the live seminar or webcast and reported CLE credits, you cannot also report credits from watching or listening to this recording.

This half-day recorded program uses three video vignettes to highlight real-world practice management, malpractice, and ethics questions confronting practitioners today. After each vignette, the panel analyzes the issues under Washington’s Rules of Professional Responsibility.

Thorny issues to be sorted through include:
  • Improving a firm’s online ratings and dealing with reviews
  • What should your fee agreement address?
  • Exploring the boundaries of what makes a fee reasonable
  • Dealing with unrepresented adverse parties in this time of limited scope representation
  • Dealing with clients with diminished capacity
  • Can you use crowd funding to finance a case?
  • Exploring RPC 1.9 – Duties to Former Clients
  • Avoiding the fallout of bad decisions clients sometimes make
  • Confidentiality when conflicts are in play
  • Going into business with a client
