As 2018 comes to a close, I’ve been busy presenting on key developments in legal ethics in what has proven to be a year of significant developments.
On December 29 I spoke before the Orange County Bar Association at their annual Ethics Update 2018 presentation. I covered recent legal developments in legal ethics, legal malpractice and risk management, including the latest cases and ethics opinions over the last year. I was happy to participate, as a former chair and currently a member of the Orange County Bar Association’s Professionalism and Ethics Committee.
I also had the pleasure of addressing a very hot topic in 2018, “Social Media and Marketing Ethics for Attorneys,” before the Riverside County Bar Association. Presenting with Doug Bradley of Everest Legal Marketing, I reviewed the new Rules of Professional Conduct regarding lawyer advertising that went into effect on November 1, 2018.
