Attorneys Peake and Workowski Present at VADA Meeting

Frith Anderson + Peake PC attorneys Walt Peake and Sean Workowski presented an ethics CLE at the 2018 Annual Meeting for the Virginia Association of Defense Attorneys in Williamsburg, Virginia on October 12. Keeping with the VADA’s 50th Anniversary Annual Meeting theme of “Looking Back & Moving Forward,” Peake and Workowski addressed ethical issues in the changing practice of law for the insurance defense lawyer as well as ethical conundrums commonly—and not so commonly—faced by all trial attorneys. The topics addressed included effective representation while controlling costs, ethical obligations in mediation and settlement conferences, the potential crossroads between the unauthorized practice of law and “paralegal tasks,” and jury research in the social media age.

Walt is a founding partner of FA+P. He specializes in medical malpractice defense and the representation of healthcare professionals in licensing, board and privileges matters, as well as other healthcare matters. Sean’s primary focus is civil litigation, particularly in the areas of insurance defense, transportation, insurance coverage, products liability, premises liability and subrogation.
