GTH partners Salvador Mungia and James Horne present at the 2017 King County Bar Association “Ethics Workout” CLE

Gordon Thomas Honeywell LLP, December 2017

GTH partners Sal Mungia and Jim Horne recently presented at the King County Bar Association's (KCBA) annual "Ethics Workout" CLE. The CLE featured current WSBA Chief Disciplinary Counsel, former Chief Disciplinary Counsel, superior court judges, and attorneys whose practices focus on representing clients in the disciplinary process. Sal, a former president of the Washington State Bar Association, discussed use and limits of social media and how attorneys can use social media within their practice. His presentation ranged from utilizing social media as a marketing tool to the ethics involved with making use of information found through social media when investigating potential jurors and adverse witnesses.

Outgoing Chief Hearing Officer Jim Horne presented on his perspective as a hearing officer and the settlement conference disciplinary process. Jim spoke about the duties of the Chief Hearing Officer, the tasks of assigning hearing officers, settlement officers, and the success rate of the settlement process and provided tips to those in attendance on successfully negotiating the disciplinary process. Additionally, Jim discussed specific issues that arise when respondent lawyers represent themselves and ethical issues that arise when “impaired” or “disabled” attorneys are the respondents.
