If you are an attorney, what does it mean to be a professional? What is the borderline between zealous advocacy and uncivil and obstructionist behavior? My guest in this episode, Don Frederico, has a lot to say about that subject.

Don is a lawyer I met over 30 years ago when I began my own legal career at Massachusetts Continuing Legal Education. At that time, Don was a litigation partner at the law firm McDermott Will and Emery. Today, Don leads the Class Action Defense Practice at Pierce Atwood.

I met hundreds of lawyers during my days at MCLE. While many of our volunteers were true experts in their fields and generous with their time in helping to educate the bar, there were some standouts. Don was not only someone who was willing to step up when asked, but he was an enthusiastic participant and someone who I thought really modeled true professionalism in the way he treated everyone.

In this episode, I speak about Don’s career, how he has found career satisfaction beyond serving clients, and what he thinks it means to be a professional in the law.
