Professional License Defense
Facing a disciplinary proceeding for alleged attorney ethical misconduct is a daunting experience. Attorneys who are unfamiliar with the procedures are at a great disadvantage in constructing and executing an effective defense.
The Arkansas Supreme Court's Committee on Professional Conduct, through its Office of Professional conduct, vigorously prosecutes ethical complaints against attorneys as part of its role in policing the profession. Hearings on allegations of ethical violations are heard by a seven-person panel of the Committee convening in Little Rock. At The Asa Hutchinson Law Group, PLC, our lawyers have the experience to defend your reputation and your license. Our attorneys have had success representing those accused of misconduct such as:
- Misuse of client funds
- Charging excessive fees
- Conflicts of interest
- Providing financial assistance to clients
- Sexual misconduct
- Incompetent representation
- Failing to file a claim within the Arkansas statute of limitations
- Improperly influencing government officials
