Lawyers in the Dock

Learning from Attorney Disciplinary Procedings

Richard L Abel

  • Essential reading for lawyers, law students, and potential clients who wish to restore trust and professional responsibility in the legal profession
  • Describes the actions surrounding certain cases based on three of the most common complaints: neglecting the client by failing to pursue cases diligently; overcharging of clients by mystifying billing practices; and betraying adversaries and courts out of excessive loyalty to clients or causes
  • Provides badly needed data and interpretation concerning the current state of legal ethics and disciplinary processes
