All California attorneys are united by membership in the State Bar of California, but few understand what would prompt it to initiate disciplinary proceedings, and even fewer have the experience to navigate its inner workings once it decides to do so. All attorneys with client contact should attend this seminar because it is likely that they will encounter problem clients at some point in their careers and need tools to handle the situation properly and ethically.

• Ethical considerations in client communication, including fee disputes and whether and when and how to withdraw ethically
• How to handle clients who complain to the State Bar (or online sites) and how to respond ethically
• Options for attorneys once the State Bar actually does get involved
