2018 Annual Florida Bar Convention: Masters Seminar on Ethics
Abiding by all ethical standards can be complex for lawyers, but with the resources available it doesn’t have to be overwhelming. In this episode of The Florida Bar Podcast from the 2018 Annual Florida Bar Convention, host Karla Eckhardt talks to Richard Bush, Steven Teppler, Henry Paul, Judy Rushlow, and John Berry about the 2018 Masters Seminar on Ethics including the most common ethics issues lawyers encounter. They discuss issues such as sole practitioners who don’t have as much accountability, internal cybersecurity issues in law firms, and how lawyers can often feel isolated both in and outside of ethics issues. Richard Bush is the senior partner of Bush & Augspurger where he has been practicing law for 37 years. Steven Teppler leads Abbott’s electronic discovery and technology based litigation practice and frequently co-counsels with other attorneys on electronic discovery issues. Henry Paul primarily represents lawyers in all matters before The Florida Bar, and applicants before the Florida Board of Bar Examiners. Judy Rushlow, who served as the assistant director of Florida Lawyers Assistance Inc. for twenty-two years, was appointed executive director by the Florida Bar Board of Directors in October 2017. John Berry serves as The Florida Bar’s Legal Division Director supervising the lawyer regulation and professionalism efforts.
