NO CLE - The Difficult Client (Ethics)

This program will address the ethical challenges to practitioners when dealing with difficult clients, ranging from the bully client to a client with a questionable background or a client that is being less than truthful. In a tough legal market when work is needed, client selection sometimes gets overlooked. This program will address what to do with a difficult client once engaged — and when it’s time to part company and how to do so. Finally, the program will also cover the ethical boundaries that sometimes get blurred by overzealous clients.
