Which “Client-Centered Counselors”?: A Reply to Professor Freedman

 In Ideas

I am honored to have been asked to participate in the fortieth anniversary issue of the Hofstra Law Review and to respond to the comments of Professor Monroe Freedman. I have long admired Professor Freedman. Teresa Collett and I use several of his articles in our legal ethics casebook, and I consider him to be one of the most thoughtful legal ethics commentators. More often than not, I agree with Professor Freedman. Invariably, he causes me to think more deeply about the important work that lawyers do for clients. I am particularly honored to join a conversation that began over three decades ago between Professor Freedman and our mutual friend (and my teacher, mentor, and co-author), Professor Thomas Shaffer. In most of what I say about legal ethics, I am merely a poor echo of Professor Shaffer‟s thought.
