Ethics for Family Lawyers

New Jersey Institute for Continuing Legal Education

More so than any other area of legal practice, matrimonial law has the potential to be a legal minefield. From relations with often difficult clients to the knowledge needed to handle complex financial matters, family law practice is fraught with ethical pitfalls. Ethical violations can occur both on the substantive and procedural sides of practice.

Good family lawyers take the ethical obligation to be competent and devote serious amounts of time to keeping abreast and mastering the more technical aspects of divorce. Moreover, they structure every aspect of their practices - from client intake to filing for motions for modification, so that potential ethical violations are avoided at the outset and throughout a cases’ duration.

Our experienced and knowledgeable faculty explores the common and frequent ethical problems that arise in family practice and provide practical solutions for addressing them.
