Welcome to California Legal Ethics! My aim to provide timely and relevant information about California legal ethics to the California lawyers, law students and other legal professionals. The legal profession is undergoing rapid and disorienting change. Many of those changes and traditional legal newspapers, web sites and other sources of information often fail to cover legal ethics issues with comprehensiveness and accuracy. My aim is to remedy this with a blog entirely devoted to Califoria legal ethics that will focus on the practical information, news and analysis that lawyers and other legal professionals need to know about, and, hopefully, want to know about. This blog will draw on my 30 years of experience with legal ethics and the discipline system (more about me) and my current full time practice as an ethics lawyer. I hope you find the effort worthwhile and I look forward to your comments.
