As an attorney or law student, you likely have a deeper understanding of your legal situation than most people who are accused of a crime. However, representing yourself is not the best solution. If you are facing charges, you will not be able to commit the same level of focus to your case as you do to your clients’ cases. Moreover, it is highly likely that you do not understand the interplay between criminal convictions, the grievance process and your continued ability to practice. Hiring an experienced ethics attorney is a good choice to ensure you receive the level of care that your case needs.

We will work with you to gather evidence and build a case that counters the claims of the opposition, will negotiate plea agreements if necessary, and will represent you in a trial setting if your case gets to that point.
