Should I Retain Grievance Defense Counsel for Representation Before the Local Panel?
It depends on the facts and allegations against you. It also depends on how comfortable you are in defending yourself. Unfortunately, many lawyers make mistakes at this stage of the proceedings that can come back to haunt the lawyer or even suggest other potential violations of the Connecticut Rules of Professional Conduct.
We recommend that you at least call us to discuss the grievance against you so we can discuss whether you should retain a lawyer to defend you before the Local Grievance Panel. After all, your Connecticut law license and your reputation as a Connecticut lawyer are at risk. Besides there is no charge for this first call.
