Internet Legal Research: How To Be Your Own Private Investigator Using Pay Investigative Research Databases

When you can’t find the investigative or background research information you need for free on the Internet, or if searching site-by-site and/or jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction is not worth your time, consider subscribing to the same pay investigative research database that private investigators and law enforcement subscribe to. These databases collect information not only from public record and "publicly available" sources from as many jurisdictions as possible, but also from "credit headers" and other proprietary sources. The information is then integrated into one large searchable relational database, with results that practically create a dossier about your subject for you.

We will illustrate how to use these types of databases using one (TLOxp) as our example (but the seminar will be useful even if you subscribe to or are evaluating another investigative research database such as Accurint, PeopleMap, or CLEAR). We will also discuss what federal and states laws come into play when you apply to get certified to use these databases.

  • What’s available at TLOxp and what’s not…and what’s the cost?
  • Find out how to get certified to use TLOxp
  • Learn to find missing people, even when you don’t know their last name
  • Discover reverse searching (by phone number, address, email address, full or partial Social Security Numbers, and more)
  • Uncover relationships
  • Get business background reports
  • Find assets, from real property ownership (and who holds the mortgages) to planes, boats, and automobiles
  • Create dossiers about people, from criminal records and bankruptcies, to domain names, social media profiles, and much more

Trust and Credibility for Lawyers: How to Build It, How to Regain It

The vast majority of people will agree that trust plays a crucial ingredient in effective collaborations, in retaining clients, and in winning cases. Trust includes that you act with values, that you demonstrate consistently to be doing the right thing, and that you show you can be counted on to keep your commitments; yet trust is also in the eye of the beholder.

So how do you consistently build trust and credibility? What is the role of honesty, transparency and openness in the legal field? How do you regain credibility if a person feels trust is harmed? Presenter Carolien Moors will discuss Steven Covey’s 13 trust-building behaviors, Kouzes’ and Posner’s six A’s of restoring credibility, and more insights and tips to build trust and regain credibility once you may have lost it.

Sean Carter: If You Can't Say Something Nice – The Ethical Imperative for Civility

As children, we were all taught, "If you can't say something nice, then don't say anything at all." Well, that advice holds especially true for lawyers. Whether in open court, a deposition, or contract negotiation, lawyers who choose to "go low," run a high risk of bar discipline. Increasingly, disciplinary authorities are treating the once aspirational goal of civility as a mandate. Therefore, it's important for all lawyers to be reminded of their obligation to "play nice."

In the style that has made him a favorite presenter from coast to coast, legal humorist Sean Carter will demonstrate the importance of civility. By drawing from examples from his annual Ethy Awards for the best of the worst ethics violations, Mr. Carter will show what happens to lawyers who forget the dos, and perhaps more importantly, the DON'Ts of civility.

Sean Carter: Knowing When To Say When – Avoiding Vexatious (and Unethical) Lawyering

While lawyers are expected to provide their clients with zealous representation, we are not allowed to become outright zealots in pursuit of our client’s objectives. Yet, time and again, this is precisely what happens as lawyers become fixated on winning at all costs. And as a result, they end up paying the ultimate price – the loss of their license to practice law.

In this sobering but surprisingly funny presentation, legal humorist Sean Carter will distinguish permissible zealous legal practices from unethical legal zealotry. Moreover, he will provide helpful tips to overcome the temptation (and sometime, client expectation) to play "hardball" and to avoid those situations that are most likely to cause lawyers to cross ethical lines.

Sean Carter: Keep It Classy (and Ethical) – Exercising Proper Restraint in Legal Marketing

With current technology, legal marketing has never been easier or less expensive. Anyone with a cell phone can shoot and distribute a commercial online in a matter of minutes. Moreover, lawyers can make their presence known on social media, blogs, law firm websites and lawyer referral sites. It’s never been easier for a lawyer to get the word out. Nor has it ever been easier for lawyers to run afoul of the ethical rules regulating legal marketing.

In this fun multimedia presentation, legal humorist Sean Carter will show examples of lawyers who cross the boundaries of legal ethics (or just good taste).

Sean Carter: Overcoming Our Implicit Biases – When the Exception Becomes the New Rule

The human brain is wired to recognize patterns and make generalizations, even those based on faulty or incomplete information. And contrary to popular opinion, lawyers are human as well and therefore, we are just as susceptible to forming biases and acting upon them. And it does not require that we harbor ill will or animus towards other people. In fact, most often, our biases are not even our own, but rather those that have been taught to us.

So how do we unlearn our biases? In much the same way that we unlearned "i before e except after c" — by noting the exceptions. Because when you weigh it all out, you uncover that it’s really more of an art than a science. In fact, as it turns out, there are more than 900 words that break this "rule" and only 44 words that actually follow it. As a result, most of us have learned to ignore this unhelpful rule we were once taught. In this same way, by learning to seek out the exceptions to our gender, racial, and other biases, we can begin to unlearn them as well and start treating our clients, colleagues and subordinates as wonderfully unique human beings.

Unplugging to Recharge: An Ethical Discussion on the Benefits and Pitfalls of Today’s Technologies

Do you feel like you are expected to always be available? Do you feel as though you will be penalized if you disconnect? Being connected 24/7 is the norm today and fully removing yourself from your job can be difficult. Rule 1.3 directs us to be diligent and prompt, but Comment 2 advises that "A lawyer’s workload must be controlled so that each matter can be handled competently." Rule 1.4 directs prompt and reasonable communication. What does this all really mean? This program will focus on the importance of disconnecting, yet doing it in a way that is both practical and ethical.
