Providing an overview of the ethics complaint process, we will present and discuss what can be expected for an attorney receiving a notice of complaint. We will suggest tools for getting legal ethics questions answered or resolved before they become complaints and provide a brief overview of the kinds of actions under Rules 1 and 4 that have resulted in disciplinary action. Next, we will look to the Rules of Professional Conduct (RPC) Preamble and explore the foundational, ethical, and moral principles found there that frame the aspired approach to living life as an attorney. We will draw connections to a few targeted rules, including Rule 6 (Pro Bono). Using the foundational concepts of 12-step programs, we will further present tools for caring for others, your clients and yourself in your law practice and in life.
