Ethics & Technology in the Law Office

1 hour of Ethics MCLE

The California Bar Association’s Rules of Professional Conduct were amended effective November 1st, and a number of the changes touch on technology issues. Amir Sarreshtehdary and Megan Yip will walk us through some of the updates to the ethics rules and will discuss important considerations and obligations related to technology in the legal practice, including the management of law offices. Amir and Megan teach together regularly on the topic of “Ethics & Technology in the Law Office” at Golden Gate University as part of the LL.M. program and are looking forward to sharing this topic with SFIPLA.


Amir Sarreshtehdary practices in the areas of estate planning, trust administration and probate law. Amir received a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California, Irvine, in Criminology, Law & Society, cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa Society. He went on to obtain his law degree from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law and then earned his LL.M. (Master of Laws) in Taxation Law from Golden Gate University, with Honors. Prior to joining TWSG, Amir headed the Estate Planning Department at a large, toxic tort law firm for over 10 years. He has also served for multiple years as the Co-Chair of the Marin County Bar Association’s Probate and Estate Planning Section. He has served as a consultant to the CEB’s (Continuing Education of the Bar) reference guide: California Power of Attorney and Health Care Directives. For the past several years, he has enjoyed teaching as an Adjunct Professor in the LL.M. in Taxation and LL.M. in Estate Planning Programs at Golden Gate University.

Megan Yip helps attorneys, tech companies, families, and organizations address how to better plan for difficult situations presented by incapacity and death, in a world with an ever-changing tech landscape. She provides legal assistance, information, tools, and resources to guide you through the maze of what should be done with digital assets in the case of incapacity or death. She has helped families with estate planning, and post death administration while working at Legal Aid of Marin, while working on the Policy Team at Twitter, and now in her own private practice. She enjoys teaching as an Adjunct Professor in the LL.M. in Taxation and LL.M. in Estate Planning Programs at Golden Gate University where she focuses on how technology and digital assets should be addressed by the Estate Planning Bar.
