Craig Alexander Addresses Ethical Considerations in Dealing with Missing or Uncooperative Clients


During the Alabama Association for Justice’s Annual Worker’s Compensation Seminar on September 14, Craig Alexander addressed the ethical rules and principles that should guide a lawyer dealing with a client who cannot be found, or who proves uncooperative with the lawyer’s effort to guide the client through a legal problem.

He also addressed the extent of the lawyer’s professional responsibility to find a missing client and the authority of the lawyer to take action on a missing client. He covered tips for resolving problems with uncooperative clients, as well as situations in which the lawyer is entitled to withdraw from the representation of an uncooperative client.
