THE 2019 ETHY AWARDS: The Best of the Worst of Legal Ethics Violations

Each year, Hollywood celebrates the best performances in motion pictures at the Oscars.  Well, each year, we note the worst ethics violations in the legal profession at the Ethys.  Humorist Sean Carter will host the festivities and announce the award winners for:

  • Worst Original Excuse
  • Least Competent in a Legal Representation
  • Best Courtroom Outburst
  • Worst Love Scene
  • Most Creative Billing
  • Lifetime Achievement Award
  • And much more …

In the process of recapping these egregious instances of unethical behavior, Mr. Carter will demonstrate how the rest of us can avoid more common ethical violations.

During this time, he represented such clients as GNC, Experian, The Boston Beer Company Homeside Lending, Safelite Auto Glass, J. Crew and many others. Most recently, he served as in-house counsel to a publicly-traded finance company.


In 2002, Mr. Carter left the practice of law to pursue a career as the country's foremost Humorist at Law. Since then, Mr. Carter has crisscrossed the country delivering comedic professional educational seminars for more than 250 organizations in three dozen states.
