Discussions will also cover the advertising restrictions for free consultations and the importance of avoiding excessive and unreasonable fees. Additionally, Carter will pull from his experiences with current and past nominees for his Ethy Awards to provide concrete examples of unethical behavior. The webinar takes place July 26, 2017.
