Ethics: Maintaining Our Collaborative Compasses

Attorney Karen J. Levitt will be co-presenting at a Massachusetts Collaborative Law Council  sponsored workshop entitled “Ethics: Maintaining Our Collaborative Compasses”, to be held on November 14, 2017 at the Courtyard Marriott in Woburn, MA.  Ethical issues come up all the time in the law.  Ethics is an important part of any profession, and is guided by various ethical rules, but it is also about doing the “right thing”.  How do ethics apply in the Collaborative Law Process and what are the implications of ethical issues that may arise?  Attorney Karen J. Levitt will be co-presenting with Attorney Jeffrey Fink, Coach/Facilitator Linda Cohan, and Financial Professional and CPA Lauren Desforge.  This interactive presentation will help participants to think more about and become more aware of how to balance personal and professional ethics in the context of the Collaborative Law process.  For more information, contact Attorney Karen J.
