Gawthrop Presents: Lauren Dentone on Conducting an Effective Interview of a Client

Lauren DentoneGawthrop Greenwood attorney Lauren Dentone spoke on “Conducting an Effective Interview of a Client” at the 2019 Joint Annual Conference presented by the Pennsylvania Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers in Harrisburg on April 25, 2019.

While open communication, perseverance and integrity are some of the skills necessary to support a client’s needs, Dentone notes that the nuances of an initial one-on-one interview can be challenging when the client is facing criminal sanctions. She offered insights on:

  • Providing support through an unfamiliar judicial process
  • Developing trust
  • Encouraging an open exchange of information
  • Reducing barriers to prompt sharing of concerns

Dentone presented with Kimberly F. Makoul, Chief, Lehigh County Office of the Public Defender. Attending attorneys earned credit for Continuing Legal Education.
