We have handled in excess of 250 State Bar inquiries on behalf of attorneys throughout California. We devote significant time and attention to addressing a State Bar inquiry at the investigative level. We typically submit a detailed response explaining why the matter concerning which the Bar has inquired does not amount to “clear and convincing” evidence of a Rule violation. This approach has been successful: few of the inquiries in which we have been involved have resulted in a formal disciplinary action initiated by the Office of the Trial Counsel, although we are ready to respond there when required.
We also have experience representing Bar applicants in admission and moral character application issues.
