In representing landlords or tenants, communication is a key component in representing the client. Although the necessity of good communication is obvious, failing to pay attention to it can cost you as a practitioner. Furthermore, practitioners should not wait until trial to implement good communication techniques and instead should start at the client intake. Additionally, best practices of communication dictate that practitioners should extend effective communication techniques to adversaries and the court (and court personnel) as well.
This course will provide a general overview of communication between attorneys, attorney-client and, attorney-court in a landlord-tenant setting starting with the negotiation of the lease agreement, to eviction proceedings and even to post-judgment matters. Your presenter, Kenneth W. Biedzynski, Esq., will concentrate on these issues and briefly discuss legal and non-legal considerations that practitioners in this field should keep in mind. He will also discuss some of the challenges that commonly face practitioners and offer suggestions as to how to respond to them.
This course originally appeared as a part of our September 2018 Bridge the Gap Event.
