Lawyers Gone Ethical

Jul 30, 2019

Legal coaching, or limited scope representation, can address a tremendous need for participants in the justice system to get access to information not otherwise available to them.  In this episode, criminal defense attorney and legal coach Jennifer Gerstenzang talks with Megan about her coaching practice.  Highlights include:

- How legal coaching bridges the gap for criminal defendants awaiting assignment to public defenders, allowing them to prepare for their first court date in a way otherwise reserved for those with private counsel

- The other needs addressed by legal coaching, including assisting family members of criminal defendants in understanding the process 

- Legal coaching allows the attorney to offer services that fit in a more flexible work style

- Ethics issues raised by legal coaching and how to address them
