Bay Area Legal Ethics Attorneys
Providing Legal Ethics, State Bar Defense and Expert Witness Testimony
At Fishkin & Slatter LLP, we keep up with new rules and statutes, along with dozens of cases each year that interpret the Rules of Professional Conduct and the State Bar Act. We keep up on Ethics Opinions and Discipline cases.
We represent and advise attorneys throughout the state of California. We are all governed by the same legal ethics rules and regulations. There are times when the law is unclear. Even State Bar prosecutors can be wrong, as can harried judges.
