Daily practice of law is full of ethical questions, many of which you are likely answering for yourself without even thinking.
“Do I need to send a copy of this letter to the court to opposing counsel?”
“Do I need to tell my client today (and not tomorrow) that we received an offer of settlement?”
“Does this check go into my trust or operating account?”
However, sometimes the ethics issues stump even the most adept lawyers. What then?
Examples of when this service has proven useful for actual clients:
HEAR FROM MY CLIENTS, IN THEIR OWN WORDS
Knowledgeable, professional, excellent ethics attorney. I cannot speak highly enough of Ms. Zavieh. She offers a wealth of knowledge about legal ethics, but what really sets her apart is her professionalism, attention to detail, efficiency and obvious passion for her work. Too many attorneys give the profession a bad name. Ms. Zavieh is the epitome of what every attorney should strive to be.
I think every attorney should have someone like Megan on as his or her personal ethics hotline. I’ve used Megan’s services this way for about a year. Before that, as ethics issues arose, I would spin my wheels researching but still wind up not knowing how big the problem is or how best to address it. The state bar ethics hotline would direct me to bar opinions but would not give advice about what to do under the specific circumstances. With Megan, I call her up, explain the situation, and get expert advice, usually on the spot. The time saved, as well as peace of mind, cannot be underestimated.
I appreciated Megan’s quick response time to inquiries, her direct, honest and unfiltered advice, which was always solid, and her professionalism and wisdom throughout the process.
