The Lawyer’s Handbook: Ethics Compliance and Claim Avoidance
provides an easy-to-use practice management tool for fast-paced, round the clock law practice in a format that ensures compliance with applicable ethics rules while minimizing the risks of legal malpractice claims. To achieve this, the book brings the basics of the fundamentals of law practice management to the table. From client intake procedures to file-closing letters, this book includes the essentials for the practical side of the practice of law. Attorneys can be more efficient and focus on the substance of the practice, while spending less time identifying, determining, and incorporating the basics, and leaving more time for attention to issues raised by their clients in ongoing representations.
