Join Ellen C. Brotman and Amy J. Coco, two experienced ethics attorneys, as they discuss the attorney disciplinary process in Pennsylvania and review local and national developments in professional responsibility and ethics.
Each month, Ms. Brotman and Ms. Coco will host a different “mystery” guest highlighting a different aspect of the disciplinary system, from initial complaint to reinstatement, from private discipline to retirement to administrative suspensions, through the three intersecting sets of rules and administrative regulations that govern the practice of law in Pennsylvania.
On Oct. 11: Meet Samuel F. Napoli, District IV Office of Disciplinary Counsel.
The Series continues! In June, we focused on the nature of discipline. In July, we discussed the intake process for complaints against attorneys. In August, we did an overview of discipline imposed this year so far. And in September, we discussed how the complaint intake process leads to the initial step in the disciplinary process: the Request for Respondent’s Position.
Coming up in October, hosts Ellen C. Brotman and Amy J. Coco welcome Samuel Napoli for an interview that focuses on when the disciplinary process become public. Their discussion will focus on Petitions for Discipline, Answers to the Petition for Discipline and resolving the case through a Petition for Discipline on Consent.
Registration is open for all upcoming webcasts in this Series. A new guest will be introduced each month!
Each “hot takes” webcast will focus on the Disciplinary Board, the IOLTA Board, the CLE Board, and the Board of Law Examiners and also recent attorney discipline cases, rule changes, bar opinions, and other ethics and professional responsibility developments. The discussions will be informative, educational and interactive as Ms. Coco and Ms. Brotman discuss the ins and outs of defending attorneys and how the system’s structure, precedent and policies influence their strategic choices.
