Increasingly, lawyer civility and congeniality are becoming a thing of the past.  Yet, it doesn’t have to be that way. Civil litigation need not lead to all-out civil war. As legal professionals, lawyers have an obligation to act just that way – professionally. In this presentation, the presenter will remind lawyers that zealous advocacy does not require us to be zealots. It’s possible to be courteous, kind, accommodating and effective. In fact, for the continued well-being of the profession (and the individual lawyer), it’s necessary. In particular, Mr. Carter will discuss practical ways to:

• Reduce the hostility in interactions with even the most difficult opposing counsel;
• Increase camaraderie among colleagues;
• Diffuse tensions among warring clients;
• Secure accommodations from opposing counsel;
• Structure more mutually beneficial arrangements with clients;
