Whether you have already been contacted by the FBBE about a bar admissions issue or you are concerned about a possible issue, it is critical to seek legal advice now rather than later.

Do not fool yourself if you think
“they couldn’t possibly find out.”

The FBBE scrupulously reviews each law student’s application of admission to the bar. This includes past indiscretions. What is of particular concern is an applicant’s “character and fitness.”

Omissions on an application will only lead the board to investigate
further. Whether you are facing further inquiry or need assistance with
a “gray” area, it is always better to double-check, rather than be
scrambling when it may be too late.

Give yourself a fighting chance to achieve your longtime goal of being a lawyer.

 

 

A complaint or grievance may be initiated by just about anyone – a
client, opposing counsel, a judge, a party, a witness, an insurance company employee, a banker, a closing agent, or even someone totally uninvolved in a matter or case.

Whether you have already been contacted by the FBBE about a bar admissions issue or you are concerned about a possible issue, it is critical to seek legal advice now rather than later.

Appellate decisions and newspaper articles may lead to a grievance. Once received by The Florida Bar, a file is opened and, if the complaint sets forth an allegation of impropriety, a letter is sent to the attorney seeking a written
response to the complaint. The attorney facing the complaint, now known as a Respondent, must make a formal and timely response.

Even at this stage, it’s critical to have an experienced bar defense lawyer at your side.

Florida Bar Admission Delayed?

As a law student, you’re already under pressure with lectures, reading assignments, and exams. Not to mention the impending bar examination. What can add to this already stressful situation are bar admission issues.

If the Florida Board of Bar Examiners (FBBE) believes you have issues of commission, it will give
them cause to investigate you and make further inquiries.

Let us help you overcome this obstacle and begin the practice of law.

Facing a Bar Complaint?

Being proactive is one of the best steps an attorney can take in preventing or mitigating a possible professional responsibility or lawyer discipline matter. If you’re unsure about the ethical ramifications of your actions, it is in your best interests to consult with an experienced legal ethics lawyer.

What Can Trigger a Bar Admission Issue or Inquiry?

Issues and inquiries can include the following:
• Law violations
• Ethical issues in college or law school
• Serious financial issues
• Drug or alcohol issues
• Issues of omission relating to any required information on your bar application for
admission

Whether you have already been contacted by the FBBE about a bar admissions issue or you are
concerned about a possible issue, it is critical to seek legal advice now rather than later.

Seeking Counsel on
Legal Ethics?

Ignoring a legal issue is tantamount
to ignoring a serious health condition.

Hoping it will go away could be dangerous.

As attorneys know, the law is not always black and white. There are often gray areas or issues that require careful legal analysis. This is true for laws that apply to lawyers.

The rules that govern members of The Florida Bar are often complicated and unclear as to their application to specific conduct or anticipated conduct.

An attorney may believe he or she is acting within the governing rules of The Florida Bar but actually is not or requires another attorney’s opinion on a certain scenario.

David Rothman can analyze the facts surrounding your issue and provide many legal ethics services, including:

• Issuing an expert opinion
• Providing expert testimony
• Drafting an opinion letter
• Advising on how to handle the ethics matter
• Advising on how to render a situation ethical

 

Trust our 40 years experience to help you successfully navigate the Bar admissions process.

 

You’ve invested a lot
of your time and money into a legal career.
