Just as nothing else in life exists in a vacuum, neither do an attorney's professional responsibilities; the rules defining what constitutes ethical behavior do not remain isolated from changes in society.

No matter how many years you have been a practicing attorney, new changes in the law and new situations may arise that present you with dilemmas regarding your professional responsibilities and what is considered ethical behavior. What you may not have been obligated to do before, may be required of you now. Likewise, what was considered unethical when you became a lawyer may be deemed perfectly acceptable now.

Sometimes it can be difficult to know what the next right thing is.

Nicholas C. Cooper provides expert opinions on matters related to the Rules of Professional Conduct and legal ethics giving knowledgeable guidance on these subjects to attorneys. He has been practicing in this area of the law exclusively for over 35 years. In very real terms, it is his job to stay keenly informed on these evolving subjects.
