Attorney disciplinary proceedings can have significant consequences on your ability to practice law and earn a living. Because disciplinary records are typically public, an official censure or history of a suspended license can make it difficult to generate new business and retain existing clients. And disbarment can permanently cut short your career. If you've been accused of legal malpractice, including negligence, breach of fiduciary duty or a conflict of interest, hire a legal ethics and professional responsibility lawyer immediately. Your attorneys can help you address client grievances and defend you against allegations of malpractice.
