    Collapse Mechanics

    Receive a refresher and get the latest updates on the Mechanics’ Lien Law.

     

    The 2007 amendments Pennsylvania’s Mechanics’ Lien Law made dramatic alterations to that law, changing, and in some cases, reversing, the balance of power among owners and claimants. But those amendments were only the beginning. If the 2007 amendments were a revolution, the ten years that followed brought an almost constant evolution of the law. In addition to the four sets of amendments the General Assembly made over that period, faced with a steady stream of mechanics’ lien cases, the courts have contributed significantly to what is a very different looking Mechanics’ Lien Law landscape.

     

    This course provides a framework for attorneys new to mechanics’ liens in Pennsylvania as well as an up-to-the-minute update on recent case law and legislation that will be valuable to even the most experienced practitioners.

    • Find out about the latest developments in the Pennsylvania Contractor and Subcontractor Payment Act
    • Hear the differencing perspectives on the Mechanics’ Lien Law from counsel for claimants, owners and lenders.
    • Learn about some of the ethical considerations that apply in working with mechanics’ liens

     

    Discuss and learn the answers to the following questions:

    • How have the courts been applying the Supreme Court’s 2014 Bricklayers decision, and how should counsel proceed in the face of what sometime appear to be inconsistent approaches by the lower courts?
    • What have we learned in the first months of operation of the State Construction Notices Directory and what legal issues are likely to arise as we move forward?
    • How do you preserve and perfect or defend against a lien claim?
    • When may lien rights still be waived?
    • What are the practical considerations when the Mechanics’ Lien Law and bankruptcy intersect?

    Collapse Sean Carter Presents...The Ethycal Lawyer (New Castle)

     


     YELP, I'VE FALLEN FOR SOCIAL MEDIA AND I CAN'T LINKEDOUT: The Ethycal Pitfalls of Social Media

    Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and the other social media tools have become ubiquitous in our high-tech society. And while social media can undoubtedly help lawyers to enhance their networks of colleagues, clients and prospective clients, it can also ensnare the unwary in a web of ethical violations.

     

    THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH: The Ethycal Imperative for Honesty

    In this eye-opening program, Sean will deal frankly with the very human inclination for dishonesty and explain how to avoid the traps from which dishonesty most often springs. In doing so, he will draw upon current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior to provide poignant reminders of the consequences of dishonesty.

     

    SHOW ME THE ETHICS!: The Ethycal Way to Bill for Legal Services

    While it is important for lawyers to be compensated for our services, it is even more important for lawyers to use ethical billing and collection practices in securing such compensation. Drawing on examples provided by current and past nominees from his annual Ethy Awards for the worst ethical behavior, Sean will provide a poignant reminder of how NOT to bill clients and collect fees. And in the process, he will reinforce the relevant legal ethics principles underlying such practices.

     


     DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME: Why You Should Never Emulate TV Lawyers

    Lawyers on our favorite legal dramas - Boston Legal, The Practice, L.A. Law - often act in ways that would cause significant trouble for actual lawyers. In this multimedia presentation, Sean demonstrates some of the worst of TV lawyer behavior and explains how similar (although less severe) behavior sometimes creeps into the actual practice of law, decreasing a lawyer's ability to best serve his or her clients and uphold the ideals of the profession.

     

    LOOSE LIPS SINK PARTNERSHIPS: The Ethycal Way to Honor Client Confidentiality 

    One of the most sacrosanct duties for lawyers is the duty of confidentiality. A client has a right to trust that his or her lawyer will not improperly divulge information about the representation. This trust is one of the hallmarks of the client-lawyer relationship. Sean Carter will explore the contours of the rules concerning lawyer confidentiality.

     

    FAIL BETTER: Eliminating Bias in the Legal Profession

    In this presentation, the speaker will discuss how even hidden and seemingly benign biases based on race, gender, religion, disability and sexual orientation can affect even the most fair-minded person. Specifically, the speaker will discuss in detail how each of the foregoing biases impairs our efforts to administer justice fairly both inside and outside of formal legal settings.

    • The “top ten” title insurance claims from a lender’s policy perspective—including unrecorded mortgages, mortgages with missing or insufficient legal descriptions, mortgages and other liens from prior owners remaining of record
    • Initiating a claim—how and when to initiate a claim, what support to include with the claim, the “etiquette” for contacting the title insurer
    • The response of the title insurer to a claim—options, what the claimant can expect to hear.
    • Resolving the claim—typical tactics, communication with assigned counsel
