We Know What Your License Means to You
It takes years of blood, sweat and tears to get through law school and pass the bar exam. When you do, you realize that the hard work has only just begun. Learning your area of law and staying on top of your practice is only one part of your obligations under our Rules of Professional Conduct. As a result, even the most conscientious lawyer will face ethical dilemmas, have to respond to a grievance or appear before the Board of Professional Conduct. Gone are the days when only bad lawyers get disciplined.
The key to avoiding a disciplinary investigation or protecting against the loss of your professional livelihood is getting experienced representation as early as possible. Our lawyers have extensive experience representing and assisting lawyers, judges and law students through every stage of the character and fitness or disciplinary process. Our litigation skills and strong advocacy set us apart from other ethics counsel.
Our lawyers also advise law firms and lawyers on ethics and professional responsibility issues, including fee disputes, conflicts of interests, recordkeeping, confidentiality and chemical dependency or mental disability problems associated with professional misconduct.
Our services include:
– Bar Admissions / Representation at Character & Fitness Hearings
– Advising clients on professional responsibility and legal ethics issues
– Disciplinary Investigations and proceedings before the Board of Professional Conduct and the Ohio Supreme Court
– Reinstatement Proceedings
