e-Filing in Indiana: Proficient Paperless Practice, Live in 2 Locations!

You or your staff may have already learned the basics on how to e-File in Indiana…

Now take the next step.

Until recently the modern practice of law required the filing of reams of paper with the courts and opposing counsel. This “paper” was in addition to the files that you kept in your law office.
No longer… With the recent change in Indiana to mandatory e-Filing, many practitioners are scrambling to catch-up to the requirement to digitize all documents being submitted to the court.

This program will help guide you through the steps you need to take to have a proficient paperless practice.
• What is the best way to digitize your filing cabinets full of paper files?
• How do you organize, track, calendar, and reply to numerous e-mail requests from the court and opposing counsel for additional information?
• How do you safeguard your digital files from unauthorized access?
• How should you back-up your digital files?
• What steps should you take, right now, to exploit current technology to help you become a more proficient, efficient, and effective attorney for your client?

Nobody-Told-Me-mobBB

Nobody Told Me There’d Be Days Like These! – June 27

SCOPE OF PROGRAM:
Most serious legal malpractice claims and successful state bar disciplinary actions are brought not for debatable violations of arcane, ambiguous, provisions of the Rules of Professional Conduct, but, in fact, for clear breaches of obvious, well-defined ethical obligations. (Don’t take money from the client trust account. Don’t sleep with the attractive domestic client you are representing in an ongoing divorce proceeding. Be candid with the court., etc..) It’s not rocket science—in fact, anyone who has sat in on a basic Professional Responsibility class would know such conduct is ethically problematic. And yet it happens. A lot. Even to our own friends and colleagues.

This engaging, highly interactive program provides a fresh and practical perspective on the fundamental question, “Why do ‘good’ lawyers ‘go bad’?” Based on a brand new original short film, written and co-produced by Michael and Chris, interspersed with a discussion among 4 experienced legal malpractice defense attorneys regarding the intersection of ethical decision-making and the manifold sources of stress encountered by attorneys in day-to-day practice.
