Rochester attorney Ted Waggoner has launched “Lawyers with Troubles” with the aim to prevent lawyers from repeating the mistakes made by others and finding themselves in hot water.

Waggoner, a partner with Peterson Waggoner & Perkins LLP, has the background to help attorneys avoid disciplinary actions, criminal charges, or civil actions. He’s served on the Indiana State Bar’s Legal Ethics Committee, Clients’ Financial Assistance Fund, and special committee on the Attorney Surrogate Rule. Waggoner has also represented lawyers before the Disciplinary Commission.

His first post says he will blog when necessary as special troubles that hit law firms need to be brought to the attention of lawyers.

“If you see someone in trouble for something that you too are doing, you might catch on and quit before you find yourself in trouble. I hate to report on my friends,” he writes in a Sept. 12 post.
