The Opposite of a Role Model

I am very pleased to be one of the speakers at tomorrow’s 2015 TBA Litigation Section annual seminar in Nashville.  I’ll be spending an hour in the afternoon providing some ethics education (hopefully with some entertainment sprinkled in) using the multitude of mistakes and misdeeds of a particular lawyer who practiced outside of Tennessee until, as a result of the conduct we’ll be discussing, a multi-year order of suspension went down in his home state in the Fall of 2014.

Without having to resort to any fictional hypotheticals, we’ll be able to discuss ethical issues involving how not to approach topics including deposition practice, communicating with courts, and dealing with opposing counsel, witnesses, and clients alike.  Recognizing that some of the conduct involved is so egregious that surely no one in the crowd would ever repeat it, I’ll also try to tease out a few practice tips that might still be of use to the more well-grounded lawyers in the crowd.

If you’ll be in the Nashville area tomorrow, and in need of CLE credits, you can still register through the link above.
