John Aromando Presents Professional Ethics Program at Maine Trial Lawyers Association

At this Maine Trial Lawyers Association Continuing Legal Education program, Pierce Atwood partner John Aromando will discuss what to tell your client in the event you make a mistake while handling the client’s matter. This presentation will include a review of the lawyer’s obligations under the Maine Rules of Professional Conduct, including Rules 1.4 and 1.7, as well as the most recent case law and ethics opinions and guidance on this subject. John will also address the attorney-client privilege for lawyers in this situation, and how to go about getting independent advice before communicating with your client on this difficult subject, without prejudicing you or your client.
