MCLE ETHICS CREDIT - FIRST FRIDAY LUNCH: Duties of an Attorney Who Does Not Practice Criminal Law to Clients with a Criminal Law Issue. Presented by Arash Hashemi, Esq. 

Often times 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.
