When it comes to ethics violations, there is no such thing as a minor or “technical” foul. All ethics violations are serious matters, evidencing a breach of the trust that has been placed in the lawyer. As a result, lawyers must avoid falling into the mindset that a particular violation is “no big deal.”
To make this case, noted legal humorist Sean Carter will chronicle a number of recent ethics cases in which lawyers were surprised to discover that even minor ethics violations can have major consequences.
Sean Carter is a Harvard Law grad, who spent a decade practicing securities law before leaving the practice of law to pursue a career as the country’s foremost Humorist at Law.
Since then, Mr. Carter has crisscrossed the country delivering comedic professional educational seminars for more than 350 legal organizations in three dozen states. His presentation topics run the gamut from legal ethics to stress management to diversity. Yet, all of his presentations have one thing in common — humor and plenty of it.
In fact, in 2003, Mr. Carter was dubbed “America’s Funniest Lawyer” by The Radio and Television Interview Report.
Finally, Sean lives in Mesa, Arizona with his wife and four sons.
