David Grunfeld, State Representative Todd Stephens, and Stuart Haimowitz participated in a CLE co-sponsored by the Criminal Justice Section and the Family Law Section.  Act 32, effective June 15, expands the categories of persons who are mandatory reporters of child abuse.  The Act, sponsored by Representative Stephens, creates new tensions between the requirement to report and the attorney-client relationship.  Mr. Grunfeld is a family law practitioner and edits the ethics column for the Philadelphia Lawyer.  Mr. Haimowitz practices criminal law and attorney discipline matters.
