Attorney Discipline Must Adapt to the Changing Profession

, The Legal Intelligencer


I am looking at Disciplinary Board opinions and it appears that lawyers are now being suspended for several cases of neglect. This type of discipline seems very severe and sometimes uncalled for. Even if a lawyer does neglect one or two cases, it seems grossly unfair to take away the license to practice, particularly if the lawyer has been practicing for many years with otherwise good results.
