A grievance from the State Bar can put your professional reputation on the line and your law license at risk. Remember the old adage—and don’t try to represent yourself!
Our firm has extensive experience defending Texas lawyers against grievances. Really, you could say that our firm “wrote the book” on grievance defense; two of our partners—Randy Johnston and Chad Baruch—have written book chapters dealing with legal ethics and the grievance process.
If you receive a grievance, don’t fall into the trap of thinking you can “just file the initial response” and then see if you need counsel. By then, the damage may be done. We advise attorneys to retain counsel immediately.
