Ethics CLE: The Ethics of Self-Interest: How to Defend Yourself While Always Defending Your Client

March 25 @ 12:00 pm - 01:00 pm

The Ethics of Self-Interest: How to Defend Yourself While Always Defending Your Client

Presented by Lori Teicher, First Assistant Federal Public Defender & JoNell Thomas, Clark County Special Public Defender

March 25 at noon via Zoom

As criminal defense attorneys, we are expected to zealously defend our clients against all accusations of wrongdoing.  But what happens when our clients accuse us of wrongdoing?  How do we balance our natural inclination to defend ourselves against our obligation to always act in our client’s best interests? First Assistant Federal Public Defender Lori Teicher and Clark County Special Public Defender JoNell Thomas will discuss the ethical considerations relevant to responding to allegations of ineffective assistance of counsel and drafting motions to withdraw.
