As licensed attorneys we worked for many years to earn the privilege to practice law in Texas. If your law license comes under attack from a complaint filed with the State Bar of Texas, it is imperative that you take immediate action to defend your license. As an attorney you know that representing yourself is not the answer and that the best course of action is to hire a professional license defense attorney to represent you.
Did you know that a person does not have to be a client or former client to file a grievance with the Office of Chief Disciplinary Counsel of the State Bar of Texas? Anyone can report allegations of professional misconduct or malfeasance. This is frightening – especially in light of the fact that a single complaint, even one lodged by someone who was never your client, can end a legal career.
Defending Your License to Practice Law in Texas
As an attorney, you know how important it is to choose your attorney wisely. When you're facing a formal complaint against your law license, your professional license defense lawyer is your partner in the fight to protect your license, livelihood, and good reputation.
It's vital to choose an attorney you feel confident in and with whom you feel comfortable discussing your case. When choosing your attorney, ask the following questions:
- How many Texas State Bar matters life mine have you handled?
- What were the results of those cases?
- What can I expect in the days and weeks to come? Are there any steps I should take right now?
- What sort of estimated fees or costs can I expect to pay?
We invite these types of questions from prospective clients. We want to share our experience and knowledge, and we want to ensure our clients understand exactly what to expect moving forward.
