It's been said that nice guys finish last. And while that might be true in the rough and tumble arenas of politics, professional prize fighting and marriage, nothing could be further from the truth in the practice of law. Zealous representation doesn't require us to be zealots. In fact, the most effective representation requires just the opposite. Nice lawyers finish first ... and so do their clients!

In this off-beat webinar, Sean Carter** uses humor to stress the importance of not only being "nice," but embodying all the traits of true professionalism:

  • Integrity -- making our word our bond.
  • Civility -- being zealous but not zealots.
  • Efficiency -- expediting client matters.
  • Charity -- giving of our time and talents for the benefit of others
  • Conciliation -- always willing to entertain compromise
  • Accommodation -- making reasonable allowances for others
  • Humility -- putting the client's interests first

**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.
