Statewide Bar Counsel
1. What will happen after the advertisement is filed electronically?
Periodically, advertisements that have been electronically filed will be randomly selected for review to ensure compliance with ethical standards.
2. Will I know if the advertisement I have filed has been selected for random review?
Yes. The Statewide Grievance Committee will provide written notice to each attorney whose juris number is listed as being responsible for the filed advertisement.
3. If a filed advertisement is selected for review and the Statewide Grievance Committee concludes that there is a violation of ethical rules what will happen?
You will be contacted in order to negotiate a resolution to the claimed violation. If you agree to a resolution this will not be considered a disciplinary finding. Claimed violations that are not resolved to the Statewide Grievance Committee’s satisfaction
are referred to the Chief Disciplinary Counsel’s office for a presentment.
How long will a filed advertisement be subject to random review?
For 3 months after the advertisement is filed.
