Episode Notes

At the ABA Annual Meeting 2019 in San Francisco, California, host Laurence Colletti welcomes Mark Chinn to the table to talk about ways to avoid malpractice for family law attorneys. Mark takes an unorthodox approach to family law by contacting insurance carriers who handle malpractice claims and discovers most malpractices are filed as claims versus lawsuits. He also explains that divorce is broken into three components — legal, psychological, and financial — and although lawyers understand those parts, they should never handle a case without the help of a CPA or certified financial planner. Lastly, he breaks down his top 10 ways to avoid malpractice.

Mark Chinn is founder and principal at Chinn & Associates, PC, practicing family law.
