Chandler Law Publishes White Paper – How to Deal with State Bar Disciplinary Matters
Document helps lawyers effectively and efficiently respond to Georgia State Bar complaints
On June 1, 2013, Douglas Chandler of Chandler Law published his latest white paper: How to Deal with State Bar Disciplinary Matters. The white paper presents recommendations for reacting to every stage of the Bar complaint process, from initial notification through the public Formal Complaint stage reviewed by the Georgia Supreme Court.
“After representing attorneys in these matters for 13 years, I thought it was time for a quick reference guide for lawyers facing a Bar complaint,” commented Douglas Chandler. “Although this can be an emotional time, the right actions and responses are critical to minimizing the impact to the lawyer and firm.”
According to the 2012 GA State Bar Office of the General Counsel Annual Report, there were more than 2,000 Bar complaints filed. The resulting dispositions involved everything from complaint dismissal to lawyer disbarment. Â “The white paper identifies real opportunities to mitigate damage to a lawyer’s career and reputation,” Chandler added.
