    Closed Captioned.

    The session will be solely centered on attorney surrogacy and how to pre-plan for an emergency crisis and protect the attorney's clients in the event the attorney is unable to practice. The presenters will use the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct as they relate to the ethics of providing a failsafe for clients in case of an emergency illness or absence of counsel. The speakers will cite specific references to the Model Rules, specifically Comment 5 to ABA Model Rule of Professional Conduct 1.3 which states that the duty of diligence may require a sole practitioner to designate another attorney to review client files, notify each client, and determine the need for immediate protective action in the event of the death or disability of the sole practitioner and how each rule would pertain to each topic will be explored throughout the session.

    Topics of discussion will include:

    1. What happens if I get sick or I am unable to practice law?

    2. How do I protect my clients in the event of a crisis in which I cannot practice law?

    3. What is attorney surrogacy?

    4. What does the attorney surrogate do?

    5. How do I pre-plan to keep my clients from being harmed if I cannot practice in the future.
