Episode Notes

How will the changes to the California Rules of Professional Conduct affect you? In this On the Road report from the California Lawyers Association (CLA) Annual Meeting, host Jim Ham talks to Neil Wertlieb about imminent changes to the California Rules of Professional Conduct. They discuss the biggest changes to the rules, who will be affected the most, and the potential concerns that some already have. Some of the most notable changes include the barring of any sexual relationship between attorney and client, allowing unlawful discrimination cases to be investigated before reaching the court, and requiring that advanced fee retainers must stay in client trust account until the service is completed.

Neil Wertlieb is an experienced transactional lawyer who provides expert witness services in litigation and arbitration matters.
