After 10 years as a solo attorney owning a law firm, I am taking a look back on the tougher points of being an attorney. I will share what I learned from studying the trust accounting and ethics rules and how to apply them in practice. I will also cover how to care for your brain health and personal wellness. I will share my own experiences which will resonate with many attorneys, but often aren't discussed among peers.

Topics include:

  1. Surviving a trust audit (Rule 45)
  2. Competency (Rule 32:1.1)
  3. Client communications (Rule 32:1.4)
  4. Attorney fees (Rule 32:1.5)
  5. Determining boundaries with yourself and your client
  6. Personal wellness

1.0 Wellness CLE credit for Iowa. This webinar will satisfy a wellness credit requirement under Iowa Rule 41.3(2) .
