On January 24, 2014, MFAN members Emerald Gratz, Karin Ciano, and Lynn Walters presented a CLE for the Hennepin County Bar Association Solo & Small Section entitled “The Art, Science, and Ethics of Working with Freelance Attorneys.” The hour-long CLE presentation was attended by more than 20 HCBA members. Emerald, Karin, and Lynn addressed several ethics topics relevant to attorneys interested in seeking help from a freelance attorney: billing, confidentiality, and conflicts. They also shared information and examples from their own work as freelance attorneys. Overall, the CLE was a great success and attendees were engaged by a lively and informative dialogue. MFAN thanks the HCBA Solo & Small Firm Section for the invitation and great discussion!

Effective September 10, 2014, Emerald has accepted a position with the Minnesota Office of Administrative Hearings and is no longer working as a freelance attorney. You can reach her at
