Representing Attorneys In Disciplinary Proceedings
Attorneys are held to high ethical standards and can face serious consequences when accused of misconduct by the disciplinary authorities. Lawyers who faced ethics charges can jeopardize a lawyer’s license, reputation and financial stability.
Above all, a lawyer facing ethics charges needs objective legal representation rather than self-representation. At Biebelberg & Martin, LLC, we will represent you in a caring, dedicated, and dispassionate manner.
A Mere Allegation Can Have Harmful Consequences
Attorney disciplinary inquiries necessitate retention of counsel at the earliest opportunity. Although a lawyer has an obligation to cooperate with the disciplinary authorities, he or she is permitted to do so while represented by counsel. This is extremely important.
Examples of ethics violations include:
- Mishandling of trust funds
- Fraud and dishonesty
- Conflicts of interest
- Failure to perform professional obligations
