The January 2018 edition of the First Friday Luncheon will focus on MCLE Ethics credit and is titled: Ethical duties to a client with a criminal law issue and will concentrate on Duties of an Attorney Who Does Not Practice Criminal Law to Clients with a Criminal Law Issue. Oftentimes an attorney who does not practice criminal law is approached by an existing client with a criminal law problem. The attorney might know who to refer the client to but does he/she know what ethical duties are owed to the client? In this course, Arash Hashemi discusses the ethical duties that an attorney owes to a client with a criminal law issue. To register for this event, please visit
