Ethics Consultation, Advice and Opinions


Legal ethics involves the study and application of what is right and wrong in the practice of law.  Lawyers are bound by an ethical code that is enforced courts or self-governing bar associations which have the authority to discipline members who engage in unethical conduct. While each state establishes its own ethical and professional standards, there are some commonly prescribed standards and proscribed conduct relating to the duties that a lawyer owes to clients, the courts, and the profession.
