Attorneys have or will be confronted with a situation where the client or client representative or even a third-party aligned with the client, is or appears to be misrepresenting facts, i.e. lying. This occurs in all practice areas, not just divorce, transactional and litigation settings. The detection of a dishonest client and immediate resolution of the issue created by the dishonesty, will not only save an attorney's reputation, but may also result in the avoidance of bar complaints, litigation against the attorney and uncompensated involvement in regulatory oversight. Although attorneys may like to think they will never have to address this situation, the fact is some clients will act in a dishonest manner under the right circumstances. This on-demand webinar is designed to explain the duties of the attorney who has a dishonest client. Those duties run not only to the client, but to third-parties and tribunals, and will vary depending on the circumstances and setting. This on-demand webinar will also provide guidance on withdrawal by the attorney from the matter in an ethical manner.
