Larry Esposito, president of the Collaborative Divorce Association of North Jersey (“CDANJ”) did a presentation on Collaborative law ethics and Joseph C. Noto, a Bergen County collaborative law attorney and a Board director and member of the Association, said he did a great presentation on the subject. The seminar was held on April 21, 2015 and the attendees were all collaborative law attorney members of the CDANJ. He integrated Opinion 699 of the Advisory Committee of Professional Ethics with the relevant N.J. Rules of Professional Conduct, the International Association of Collaborative Professionals ethical standards and the recently passed New Jersey Family Collaborative Law Act. The discussions by the collaborative law attorneys centered on: screening issues before a client may enter into the collaborative law process; how ethics apply to the Participation Agreement, which every client must sign to commence the collaborative law process; confidentiality issues, discovery issues, cut off dates and advocacy issues during the process. Joseph Noto said this subject is of great concern to collaborative law attorneys since they represent a client on a very limited basis during the collaborative process and facts arise regarding all these issues which must be dealt with ethically. The seminar was well worth attending and Continuing Legal Education Credits were given to the attorneys attending.
