Professor Marc Garfinkle’s “Ten Commandments of Defensive Lawyering” are a dozen (!) do’s and don’ts for solo and small-firm lawyers that can keep them out of trouble.   In this humorous, fast-moving program, drawn from his popular book, “$olo Contendere:  How to Go Directly from Law School into the Practice of Law without Getting a Job”   Marc offers some scraps of wisdom from his years at the bar.   

One of America’s most popular CLE speakers, Marc Garfinkle is a solo attorney specializing in matters involving attorney ethics violations.  A former ethics investigator and committee chair, he knows how attorneys get into trouble and why they start losing sleep.
