Years ago the CLE Performer, Stuart Teicher, Esq., learned that his mother lied to him. It turns out that the world does not revolve around him. And the same holds true for the practice of law! In this unique program Stuart uses his amusing style to explain how the key to proper ethical behavior (and long term success in the practice) is to realize that the practice is about the client, not the lawyer.

Topics include:
- Demystifying conflicts between the lawyer and client (Rule 1.8)
- Ethical issues with money and fees (Rule 1.5)
- The importance of collaboration to getting better (Rue 1.1)
