Jordan Rohlfing 'No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Remembering Your Ethical Duties in Situations with Family and Friends' September 4th 2015

Our monthly First Friday Mass and Meeting is September 4th.

September’s speaker will be Attorney Jordan Rohlfing from DeWitt Ross & Stevens S.C., Madison. She gave the this presentation to the Madison Chapter of the Saint Thomas More Lawyer’s Society last month. Her presentation has been approved for 1 Ethics CLE Credit. So this is an additional benefit to our members who attend the September First Friday.

Jordan’s presentation will address the situation we all have found ourselves in, you are at a gathering and someone buttonholes you and asks a legal question. "No Good Deed Goes Unpunished: Remembering Your Ethical Duties in Situations with Family and Friends" will help you navigate that tricky situation. Jordan’s presentation will also touch on ethical issues attorneys may face in the world of social media.

Jordan Rohlfing received her B.A. and B.S., magna cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Loyola University Chicago. She earned her J.D., cum laude at the University of Wisconsin Law School. She practices with the firm of DeWitt Ross and Stevens S.C. in areas such as commercial and contract litigation, labor and employment litigation and consulting, intellectual property litigation, insurance coverage disputes, and more. When Jordan is not working, you can find her running on Madison’s fantastic trails, on the ultimate frisbee field, or enjoying a cold beverage at the Terrace.

Jordan has previously presented this material and it has been accredited for 1 CLE Ethics Credit. With her interesting topic and engaging style, you will certainly learn some nuances of how to avoid entangling yourself in a legal situation you had not expected.

Mass will be celebrated at 7:30 A.M. in the Chapel of St. Edmund Campion, located on the 4th floor of Eckstein Hall (Marquette University Law School). Mass will be followed by our meeting and discussion from 8:00-9:00 A.M., which includes a continental breakfast (suggested donation $4.00). Parking is available in the Eckstein Hall underground parking structure. (Enter the lot, pull a ticket, and find an open parking space.
