MORAL POSITIONING SYSTEM (M.P.S.) FOR LAWYERS
If you’ve ever faced a moral or ethical dilemma that had no clear answer, this program is for you.  
Regardless of whether you’re a litigator, transactional attorney, mediator,  judge, or in-house
counsel, navigating the ethical and moral maze that is an everyday part of your job
is challenging; at times, frightening. 
The purpose of this interactive one-hour seminar is to give you some new tools to help you
make the hard choices with greater confidence and better results. 
After an overview of Lawrence Kohlberg’s stages of moral development, participants will
explore the practical application of Kohlberg’s theories to everyday ethical dilemmas.
The seminar will conclude with a discussion and examples of how you can use your new 
understanding of Kohlberg’s work to navigate ethical dilemmas; negotiate more favorable
settlements and other types of contracts for your clients; to choose a jury more likely to be
receptive to your clients’ positions; to more effectively manage personnel; 
and to better navigate various types of challenging interpersonal situations.

CLE PROGRAM HIGHLIGHTS:
Understanding the Hidden Connections Between Small Law Firm Management, Ethics, Professionalism, and Profit
Marketing: Setting the Stage for Ethical, Professional and Predictable Growth
Sales: The Actual Cause of So Many Bar Grievances
Factory: Organizing and Keeping Track of How the Work Gets Done
People: Who, When & How to Hire, Train, Manage & Make a Profit with Legal Staff 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
An estimated 54% of bar grievances filed nationally have their root in a problem with the way the lawyer's firm is managed. Poorly-conceived marketing and sales lead to a poor match between firm and clients. Poorly developed business processes and procedures lead to unpredictable and inefficient work product. Poorly managed financial controls put undue pressure on lawyers to prioritize short-term financial needs, instead of being able to stand-strong for their clients.

 A law firm with inadequate financial controls will, sooner or later, wind up with accounts receivables. Clients who owe their attorney money tend to avoid communicating about important developments in their case or matter. Lawyers who manage a case or matter with inadequate input from a distant client who is staying away due to an outstanding balance tend to get the most bar grievances filed against them when the case or matter blows up in their face.  Inadequate attorney communication tends to be the "smoke" pointing to inadequate financial controls in a law firm. So inadequate financial controls and the absence of supporting law firm management policies and procedures to avoid accounts receivables in the first place tend to be some of many "hidden" law firm management problems that cause bar grievances, incidents of legal malpractice, and low attorney and staff morale.  

 Law firms that are well-managed make lawyers happier. Law firms that are well-managed help lawyers act in a manner more becoming a professional. Law firms that are well-managed also tend to be more profitable than those which are managed by the seat of one's pants, especially if those pants have never sat through even a single course about how to manage a small law firm.
