One of the most fundamental duties that we owe our clients is the duty to provide them with loyal and independent representation. In other words, we are duty bound to put their interests first and to avoid conflicts of interest; something that becomes increasingly difficult to the extent we enter into professional and personal relationships with clients, opposing counsel and parties, judges and others involved in the legal process.

In this eye-opening webinar, legal humorist Sean Carter** will recount the tales of those lawyers who failed to meet this duty by creating the following entanglements:

  • Entering into business transactions with clients
  • Accepting gifts from clients;
  • Accepting (or giving) loans;
  • Romantic entanglements with clients;
  • Friendships with judicial officers;
  • Family and close relationships with opposing counsel/parties

**Sean Carter is a Harvard Law grad, who spent a decade practicing securities law before leaving the practice of law to pursue a career as the country's foremost Humorist at Law.

Since then, Mr. Carter has crisscrossed the country delivering comedic professional educational seminars for more than 350 legal organizations in three dozen states. His presentation topics run the gamut from legal ethics to stress management to diversity. Yet, all of his presentations have one thing in common -- humor and plenty of it.

In fact, in 2003, Mr. Carter was dubbed "America's Funniest Lawyer" by The Radio and Television Interview Report.

Finally, Sean lives in Mesa, Arizona with his wife and four sons.
