Marriage and guns

One stop shopping

I was in Bibb County (Macon, Georgia) courthouse this morning. If you are looking for marriage, guns, or both, well you will find them in the same room.


Encore Performance

Kim M. Jackson and another attorney spoke for 1.5 hours in a national webinar hosted by Strafford Publishing called Ending the Attorney-Client Relationship: Ethical Duties on August 24, 2010. The webinar was pre-approved for CLE credit in 31 states and “attended” by attorneys in over 25 states.

Due to the success of that program, Strafford has decided to do the program again, and I have accepted the invitation to speak on the subject again.  Strafford will host the live phone/web seminar entitled Ending the Attorney-Client Relationship – Ethical and Fiduciary Duties on Thursday, August 11, 2011, from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m. EDT.

The seminar will offer perspectives and guidance on these and other critical questions:

What ethical rules govern specific trigger events for terminating the relationship and when do attorneys have discretion to fire the client?

What should the termination notice to the client say and how much advanced notice should be provided to the client?

What are the attorney’s continuing fiduciary duties to a client post-termination?

After our presentations, I and the other panelist will engage in a live question and answer session with participants so we can answer your questions about these important issues directly.

I hope you’ll join us.  Follow the link for more information or to register.


Happy Independence Day
